Online Event by the German Embassy TLV / Goethe Institut TLV / Leo Baeck Institute Jerusalem, October 1st, 19:00 MEZ/20:00 Israeli time, Moderators: Dr. Sagi Schaefer, Dr. Ofer Waldman
October 3, 1990 marks a major turning point in German history. This event is usually referred to as German reunification, but even the terms have become disputed, as has much else about this event. After three decades we still ask: What place should the legacy of the (east-)German Democratic Republic have in the Berlin Republic, and does this legacy pose a challenge to accepted narratives of Jewish-German history?
Dr. Susanne Wasum-Rainer, German Ambassador to Israel
Dr. Carola Dürr, Director Goethe-Institut Israel
