Action of the House of One on demonstration #unteilbar

Jews, Muslims and Christians read Article 4 on religious freedom

The House of One is taking part in the #unteilbar (indivisible) demonstration, which will take place on Saturday, October 13 in Berlin. "We all have a common responsibility to preserve and revitalize peaceful coexistence in our society," says Imam Osman Örs.

His colleague, the Jewish cantor Esther Hirsch, adds: "Whether we say salaam, shalom or peace - we mean the same thing". Since 2011, Jews, Christians and Muslims in Berlin have been working together to create a place of peace with the House of One. "This is only possible because Article 4 of the Basic Law guarantees the freedom of faith as well as of religious and ideological confessions," says Hirsch. "We defend this freedom!"

In order to emphasize the importance of this fundamental right, Esther Hirsch, Osman Örs and Kristin Bohner (Education Officer of the House of One) will publicly read Article 4 in a small ceremony.

Where?                       In front of the pavilion of the House of One at Petriplatz, Berlin-Mitte

When?                        Saturday, October 13, 2018, between 1.30 and 2.30 p.m.

The action is part of the performance of the artist collective "Die Verfassungsschatzis", which wants to make the Constitution heard at several stations along the demonstration route.


After Munich and Hamburg, the Berlin demonstration is the third major rally under the motto "Autumn of Solidarity". Around 40,000 people were already on the streets in Munich on 3rd October and 30,000 in Hamburg on 29th September.
