Since the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, 2023, something has been happening that many considered unthinkable – or did not want to recognize. Jewish life is once again being threatened and publicly defamed, also in Germany. Eighty years after the Holocaust. It was Robert Habeck, Germany’s Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, who put it into plain and important language in his now-famous speech: “What we need now is clarity and not a blur. And to be clear: Anti-Semitism shall not be tolerated in any form whatsoever.” To open lit.COLOGNE 2024, Habeck will meet one of Germany’s most important public intellectuals, whose parents were saved from Nazi extermination by Oskar Schindler, and who has always participated unequivocally in the public debate: Michel Friedman. They will talk about the current situation, raging anti-Semitism, and what needs to happen now.
