Interview with Prof. Wolfgang Kaschuba

Burning Israel flags, Jew-hating slogans all over Germany: anti-Semitism is increasingly taking place in the open. It is striking that many young people are also shouting along. Where does their anger come from, and what can be done about it? Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kaschuba is a founding member of the Berlin Institute for Empirical Integration and Migration Research (BIM), which is funded by the Hertie Foundation, and one of 21 authors of our book "Democracy Boosters".

Glioblastoma is one of the most common malignant primary brain tumours and is still incurable. Around 4800 people are diagnosed with it for the first time in this country every year. In an interview on World Brain Tumour Day, the expert explains how a new vaccination is supposed to help glioblastoma sufferers, why interdisciplinary work is so important, and why her patients make her humble every day.

Grzegorz Nocko and Aleida Assmann talking in the podcast "Mit Bleistift gelesen"!

The state of our democracy is not only the subject of much discussion, but also of much writing. Democracies can be justified and explained from different points of view. The podcast "MIT BLEISTIFT GELESEN" deals precisely with this. Why is the term "nation" under general suspicion? And why do we need it anyway? Aleida Assmann talks about this with Grzegorz Nocko.
