Sun, Mar 24, 7:30 PM: Yallah Deutschland! Israelis in Berlin with Rachel Seelig. Is Berlin a Jewish city? Remembered in Jewish collective memory as the place where Hitler's "final solution" was conceived, Berlin has recently become a magnet for young Israelis, who are not only drawn to the city's cosmopolitan culture but also contributing to it. What does the growing presence of Israelis in Berlin mean for both Israel and the diaspora? Are Israeli artists, writers, intellectuals and entrepreneurs revitalizing the Jewish life that thrived in major European centers a century ago, or are they, as some critics have suggested, renouncing the Zionist dream? This talk will explore Berlin's Israeli expat culture through the lens of the city's Jewish past while reflecting on its significance for the future. Register here.
