As you have surely heard in the news, there has recently been a rise in the number of anti-semitic attacks on Jews or Israelis in Germany. We at Kanaan, as a business that was established by a Jew and a Palestinian who prove that coexistence is not just a fantasy but our reality, believe that the answer to hate and racism lies in education.

Kanaan has been supporting “Young Muslims in Auschwitz”, an organization founded by Burak Yilmaz, a young German man of Turkish descent. Burak travels each year with a group of Muslim youth – of Arabic, Turkish and Kurdish families – to visit the Nazi death camp in Poland. The participants experience first-hand the atrocities committed there against the Jews and see with their own eyes what the consequences of racism can be. Upon returning to Germany they produce a theatre show based on their impressions. With this play, they then visit schools, and seek to raise the awareness of young people to the topic of anti-Semitism.

Now, Burak and his group are looking to spread their message onto the internet, and are producing a video series against jew-hatred in Germany. Together with crowdfunding website GoFundMe they have been collecting donations, and Kanaan has joined in on the efforts by asking our guests to donate 0.50€ for each glass of tap-water they order, and have so far collected 100€ every week. We invite you to join us for this special night, which aims to collect more donations to contribute to this heart-warming project and to building real bridges between our cultures.

We are looking forward to hosting you at this event!
