Over 150 events with more than 80 cooperation partners: For 19 years now, lectures on the topic antisemitism, city tours of Jewish life, theater performances and film screenings have been taking place throughout Germany. Annually around October 9th – the anniversary of the attempted attack on the synagogue in Halle – and November 9th – the anniversary of the November pogroms in 1938 – we and The Anne Frank Zentrum, our ally in the fight against antisemitism, organize a diverse nationwide program with numerous other initiatives, organizations and the committed public as a clear sign against antisemitism. The Weeks of Action make antisemitism in everyday life in Germany visible, point out actions against it and support civil society in its daily fight against antisemitism.
But after the attacks in Halle and Hanau, after the massive antisemitic outrages in May 2021 under the guise of “criticism of Israel,” and also after numerous attempts to undo the achievements of the fight against antisemitism and draw a line under it, our message for this year is: Yes, we are finally putting an end to it. An end to antisemitism and an end to Shalom Germany: an end to the phrasemongers who talk grandly and hold back on concrete actions, an end to the goysplainers who want to explain antisemitism to Jews and an end to the critics of Israel who supposedly have nothing against Jews but want to wipe Israel off the map.
Here is the campaign video.
