Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian students study together in the Trilateral Centre for European Studies at the private University of Herzliya near Tel Aviv. Such «lived utopias» do not only exist in the Middle East. Are they ambassadors for a world without weapons and without mental and psychological obstacles?

The event is thematically connected with the symposium of the Allianz Visiting Professors for Jewish and Islamic studies, The Other in Near Eastern and Jewish Studies. [11/12 Nov 2010]. All proceeds will go to IDIZEM e.V. Interkulturelles Dialogzentrum München.

Organisers: Lichterkette e.V. and the Stiftung Literaturhaus München. This particular Deutschstunde is supported by the Allianz Cultural Foundation and the Allianz Direct Help Foundation.
