Die Methoden und Vorgangsweisen, die bei diesen Verbrechen zur Anwendung kamen, wurden später…

In recent years, Jewish communities in many countries in Europe have seen a worrying increase in anti-Semitic incidents, from smearings to hate posts and hate speech to physical attacks on people and lives. As the extensive surveys by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) from 2012 and 2018 on discrimination…

During the 1930s the two Hebrew repertoire theatre companies of the Yishuv, Habima, and the Ohel, performed a large corpus of plays dealing with the landscapes of the Eastern European Jewish shtetl.  Their fascination with the shtetl is surprising, considering the fact that these two companies were deeply committed to the Zionist project, whose ethos was the building of a new society in Eretz-Israel and the negation of the diasporic Jewish existence.  In this lecture, I would like to explore…
