We are experiencing the most serious crisis in Polish-Israeli and Polish-Jewish relations since the collapse of Communism in Poland in 1989. While the Polish Jewish community is at the center of this maelstrom, its voice is not considered enough in the discourse.
Alexei Navalny is the most prominent Russian opposition figure and anti-corruption activist in today’s Russia. Since it became clear that he was poisoned with Novichok, German-Russian relations have reached a new low.
As we celebrate the first 20 years of the pioneering AJC Berlin office, we are fully cognizant that there remains much to be done. Fortunately, history has evolved and we are not alone. Our many German partners give us the confidence to believe that, whatever the difficulties, we will overcome them together.
