The walls within: working with defenses against otherness

Online Conference 5-11 July 2021

From Jews and Germans, Israelis and Palestinians to the Tense Triangle between Germans, Israeli-Jews and Palestinians

Following four theoretical remarks, the author describes his work creating dialog between children of Holocaust survivors and children of Nazi perpetrators, and his work creating dialog between Israeli Jews and Palestinians. From this evolved the idea of working with all three groups together, Israeli families of Holocaust Survivors, German families of Nazi perpetrators, and Palestinians. The 'tense triangle' between these three groups is described both phenomenologically and theoretically.
