A lecture series organised by the Leo Baeck Institute London in cooperation with the German Historical Institute.

This season’s theme intends to approach its broad subject via a spectrum of political, legal and cultural perspectives. We will examine more closely how the realities of ‘land’ or ‘territory’ impact on the daily lives of Israeli and foreign citizens living in the State of Israel, be they Israeli, Palestinian, Jewish, Muslim or Christian.

Please refer for more information on the lecture series to the leaflet here.

Crime and Punishment – Four German-Jewish Variations 

 

by Dr Daniel Wildmann (Director, Leo Baeck Institute London  and Senior Lecturer in History, Queen Mary University of London)

Spring Term 2016 at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel

Dr Wildmann is a Lady Davis Visiting Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

 

A lecture series organised by the Franz Rosenzweig Minerva Research Center for German-Jewish Literature and Cultural History, the Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, the Richard Koebner Minerva Center for German History and the Leo Baeck Institute Jerusalem.

The lecture series will examine how film uses emotions to convey moral values. What is at stake when Jewish characters are at the centre of the plot? What do we learn about the place of Jews and Judaism in German society? And last but not least: What do we learn in films about Nazi Germany when these films discuss issues of moral judgment and justice?
