Taking to the Streets: Israeli Protest Movements Part 1

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Blood Money from Germans: The Reparations of 1952

Israel was deeply divided over the issue of reparations from Germany to compensate for the loss of Jewish property during the Shoah and to assist immigrant absorption in the early 1950s. The left and right fervently opposed negotiating with Chancellor Adenauer and receiving German money while the centrist Mapai looked at the pragmatic needs of the young state and recognized that the receipt of billions of marks would necessitate direct contacts. The Knesset debates and large demonstrations brought about violence, attacks on the parliament and dangerous speeches, including a 3 month suspension of Menachem Begin.

A four part class. Each class stands alone, register any time.
