Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock visits MAKKABI

MAKKABI Germany News

Today Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock visited us in our Berlin office. On today's 84th anniversary of Reich pogrom night It was about commemorating the horrors of the past together, talking about anti-Semitism in our society and on our sports fields, but also looking ahead together to see how we can shape a better present and future in sport without racism and Jew hatred.
 
Annalena baerbock visited us at a historical location: It is not only our Berlin headquarters, but the place where the Nazi propaganda games took place in 1936. Today, 86 years after the games and exactly 84 years after the November pogroms, we are here: as Germany's self-confident Jewish sports association. And we are proud Jews and proud Germans who, with the Star of David on our chests and black, red and gold in our logo, live the new self-image of Judaism in Germany every day.
 
In conversation with the presidency of MAKKABI, our friends from TuS Makkabi Berlin eV and representatives of our anti-Semitism-critical education project together1 affirmed that anti-Semitism and any kind of religious, sexual or cultural discrimination is an attack on the values ​​of sport and a threat to our democratic society. That's why MAKKABI is more than sport and that's why our projects in organized sport start right there.
 
During the visit, we lit two memorial candles together with Ms. Baerbock & Holocaust survivor Marian Wajselfisz (founding member of Makkabi Berlin). In memory of the victims of the Night of Broken Glass, our Rabbi Jonah Sievers spoke Kaddish.
MAKKABI Germany and Annalena Baerbock commemorate together and emphasize: Jewish life has a firm place in Germany - but anti-Semitism must not be given a place!
 
We would like to thank Mrs. Baerbock for today's visit and the important discussions.
