The Expert Forum 2016

Speaking and Keeping Silent about Antisemitism

The Expert Forum „Speaking and Keeping Silent about Antisemitism“ is a forum for shared reflection on antisemitism from the perspective of the Jewish civil society – students, media representatives, artists, academics and practitioners. The Expert Forum took place in Berlin from 15.11.2016 to 16.11.2016. With this event, Competence Centre (ZWST) aimed to make visible the Jewish perspective on antisemitism and to create a discussion about self-empowerment and pool resources. The participants were offered a versatile programme that attempted to enrich their practical experience by engaging speakers from scientific, artistic and educational backgrounds. The expert forum captured the findings of the empowerment movement and invited the participants to discuss different empowerment approaches.
