For decades, Richard Lichtheim represented the interests of the Jewish national movement and the Yishuv. During World War I, he worked to prevent the expulsion of Jews from Palestine. In World War II, he was one of the first to recognize that the Nazis had the systematic extermination of European Jewry as their goal. In a moderated discussion, Yfaat Weiss (Jerusalem/Leipzig) and Markus Kirchhoff (Leipzig) will discuss two recent publications on the topic with the author and editor Andrea Kirchner (Berlin). Following the discussion, the organizers invite attendees to a reception with the opportunity to view the exhibition "Jewish Album," featuring photographs by Rita Ostrovska.
