The Association 321–2021: 1700 Jahre jüdisches Leben in Deutschland e.V. (321-2021: 1700 Years of Jewish Life in Germany) was founded on April 18th 2018 in the parish hall of the Cologne synagogue with the purpose of remembering the Jewish culture and history in Germany and Europe. We are celebrating 1700 years of Jewish-German life with a range of events and activities throughout 2021. Besides a central reception in Cologne we are planning several cultural events all over Germany as well as publications to support the anniversary.
Through these actions, the Association intends to contribute to the cultural, political and inter-religious discourse within society and to oppose a noticeable trend towards Anti-Semitism through open, meaningful dialogue.
