Lebenszeugnisse: Gewalt gegen Juden im Scheunenviertel

In the organizer's words:

Book presentation, conversation

Wolfgang Benz in conversation with Karsten Krampitz
After the First World War, the legendary Scheunenviertel district in the center of Berlin was the scene of anti-Semitic violence in November 1923, a year of crisis for poor Jews from Eastern Europe. In Grenadierstraße, a mob raged against Jews, looting and using violence. The pogrom was soon forgotten and suppressed, but it was a prelude to the persecution of the "Third Reich". Karsten Krampitz has researched the background and reports on it in an interview with historian Wolfgang Benz.
