Why anti-Semitism threatens us allMichael Blume: "Hatred leads to the Abyss."
Panel with Michael Blume, anti-Semitism commissioner of Baden-Württemberg, and representatives of the House of One on the daily struggle for tolerance between people of different religion, culture and origin.
Insults, hostility, attacks - anti-Semitism is still part of the everyday life of any Jewish citizen in Germany. There is more behind it than just prejudices or an anti-Jewish attitude. At the heart of anti-Semitism is the idea of a Jewish world conspiracy that their believers think must be fought. "This hatred leads to the abyss," says Michael Blume, anti-Semitism commissioner in Baden-Württemberg. "Anti-Semitism affects us all."
What is the source of anti-Semitism in Germany? What makes people particularly susceptible to such conspiracy theories? How can one counter this misanthropic ideology? Michael Blume will discuss these and more questions with Jewish cantor Esther Hirsch and Imam Osman Örs, both from the House of One Foundation.
