Weeks of Action Against Anti-Semitism

Dear Friends,

For the 14th time the Aktionswochen gegen Antisemitismus – Weeks of Action against Anti-Semitism – have begun! This year we are thrilled to welcome the Anne Frank Center of Berlin as a partner organization on this project. This combination of our initiatives, long dedicated to the fight against Anti-Semitism, promises exciting opportunities and long-term, sustainable synergy. (Pardon our buzzwords.) This year, the Weeks of Action against Anti-Semitism will address, among others, the following key subjects:

Anti-Semitism and conspiracy-based ideologies, and the social acceptability of voicing them
Anti-Semitism under the mantle of criticism of Israel, or through unbalanced coverage of Middle Eastern conflict by German news media
Anti-Semitism in particular subcultures
Online hate speech against Jews or Judaism
The fear, not exclusive to the German Jewish population, of a “new Anti-Semitism” arising as a result of increasing migration from states with official anti-Israel policies and positions

Certain public buildings in Berlin, Cologne, Dresden, Göttingen and Kiel will also be displaying excerpts of our timeline of anti-Semitic incidents – if you are interested in organizing a similar event for your city, please get in contact with us! You can reach us here:

An overview of events can be found in our Event Calendar for 2016

Thank you for your engagement and a successful beginning to this year’s Weeks of Action against Anti-Semitism!

Miki, Rachel, und das Aktionswochenteam
