Anti-Semitism is not a new phenomenon. And yet it continues to take on new forms and appear in new guises. Another new feature that characterizes the current discussion surrounding anti-Semitism is the context of multifaceted perspectives in which it is taking place in Germany’s “migration society” today. Throughout history, anti-Semitism has repeatedly resulted in displacement, (forced) migration, flight and diaspora.

This thematic area deals with the various forms and overall phenomena of anti-Semitism.

Our digital media archive examines various analyses, forms of resistance and ways of dealing with anti-Semitism in educational and cultural institutions from several different perspectives.

What is anti-Semitism? Which ‘old’ and ‘current’ manifestations of anti-Semitism exist today? How can anti-Semitism be dealt with and combated from different perspectives in schools and other educational and cultural institutions?

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The Danger of a Single Story

“Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.” (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 2009)
