Israelis, Palästinenser und Deutsche in Berlin

The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung together with De Gruyter cordially invite you to the online book talk “The Moral Triangle” – „ISRAELIS, PALÄSTINENSER UND DEUTSCHE IN BERLIN. Geschichten einer komplexen Beziehung” by Katharina Galor & Sa’ed Atshan.

Berlin is home to Europe’s largest Palestinian diaspora community and one of the world’s largest Israeli diaspora communities. In their book, The Moral Triangle: Germans, Israelis, Palestinians, that is now available in the German translation (De Gruyter 2021), Sa’ed Atshan and Katharina Galor draw on ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with Israelis, Palestinians, and Germans in Berlin to explore these asymmetric relationships in the context of official German policies, public discourse, and the private sphere. They show how these relationships stem from narratives surrounding moral responsibility, the Holocaust, the Israel–Palestine conflict as well as Germany’s recent welcoming of Middle Eastern refugees.

We are happy to invite you to a digital book talk with the authors, Katharina Galor and Sa’ed Atshan, on 15 December 2021, 7pm CET.

Please register here. The event will be held in English.
