Debate on the consequences of hate speech. Why and how should one react to it?
The starting point for the debate will be the film Watching the Moon at Night, presenting the acts of terrorism in the contemporary world and their relation to anti-Semitism. The participants of the meeting will discuss the sources of aversion to another man’s otherness. What is hate speech? How can we oppose and counteract it? What do we risk if we tolerate it?
