50 Years of Diplomatic Relations between Germany and Israel

The anniversary year "Fifty Years of Diplomatic Relations between Germany and Israel" is reflected in the current academic program of Freie Universität Berlin. In 1963 the first Institute of Jewish Studies in Germany was founded at Freie Universität. This year the university is hosting a variety of conferences and workshops for scholars and scientists in cooperation with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and other Israeli universities. German-Israeli cooperation in science and research was a pioneering factor in the diplomatic relations between the two countries.
