The event unfortunately has to be cancelled!

One of the foundational narratives in post-war Germany revolves around the commitment to remembering the Holocaust. However, there exists a prevailing assumption that Muslims or Muslim immigrants may either be unable or unwilling to engage with Germany’s historical past. Is a new concept of remembrance culture necessary? If yes, how could that reality look like and what other narratives are meant to be heard?
