Autentic Special Screeing of COLLECTION OF HATE - IMAGES OF ANTISEMITISM
Berlin, 31.01.2024 – Factual specialist Autentic hosted a special screening of COLLECTION OF HATE – IMAGES OF ANTISEMITISM (52’) in collaboration with pay-tv channel SPIEGEL Geschichte and the Arthur Langermann Foundation in Berlin last night. The event brought together 150 people across generations, including selected journalists and delegates from media and subject-related institutions as well as a large number of high school students, who eagerly engaged in a vivid discussion about visual antisemitism with holocaust survivor and protagonist Arthur Langerman and director Andrea Oster.
Arthur Langerman is Belgian, Jewish, a jeweller, and has dedicated his life to the collection of antisemitic images. "The most hideous hate images are hanging in my home. It's my way of coping with the trauma of the Shoah" says Langerman. In about 60 years he has gathered over 10.000 antisemitic objects. Where do the widespread stereotypes of Jews come from? What has led to the deep-seated hatred of Jews? And why do anti-Jewish stereotypes persist to this day, spreading hatred and harassment around the world? In the documentary by Autentic in collaboration with Pfeffer Media and SPIEGEL Geschichte, the passionate collector travels to various places in search of answers.
The film was produced with the support of the Arthur Langerman Foundation, which oversees the extensive visual antisemitica collection donated by its founder. It is administered in trust by Technische Universität Berlin and is based at the Center for Research on Antisemitism.
Patrick Hörl (Managing Director of Autentic): “2025 will mark the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, but standing against antisemitism and educating about it, remains as relevant as ever. Documentaries are an incredibly powerful medium to inform and inspire audiences and to bring people closer together. This event shows the potential of Arthur Langerman’s story to enable an intergenerational discussion about history and antisemitism. I was especially touched to see the younger generation actively participating in the Q&A after the film.”Click here
