Anti-Semitism in reporting
With Erik Petry, Prof. Dr. phil., historian, deputy director of the Center for Jewish Studies at the University of Basel.
Main areas of work: History of the Jews in Germany and Switzerland in modern times; Zionism; History of Anti-Semitism.

Since Hamas' massacre of Israeli civilians on October 7, 2023, and Israel's subsequent declaration of war, anti-Semitic patterns of thought and behavior have emerged worldwide. These patterns have a millennia-old tradition. Consciously and unconsciously, they are passed on. Recognising them and explicitly distancing oneself from them is the task of all enlightened contemporaries and, in particular, that of Christians. After all, the Christian roots are Jewish. Jesus Christ came into the world as a Jew. He was addressed by his followers with the honorary title of rabbi. Jews have been our companions of civilization since ancient times.

Moderator: Pastor Dr. theol. Ivana Bendik
