This production of a panel discussion involving Doron Mendels, Angelika Timm, David Witzthum, and Prof. Robert Wistrich is a look at the phenomena of a resurgent Anti-Semitism in contemporary Germany. Those who enjoy translated lectures will enjoy this production; otherwise it will be very difficult for most listeners to follow. The lecture appears to be available on YouTube and other websites, which makes more financial sense than purchasing this production. Recommended only for the content, if you can get through the translation.
