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 academic program of Freie Universität Berlin. In 1963 the first Institute of Jewish Studies in Germany was founded at Freie Universität. To mark the anniversary, 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 paved the way for diplomatic relations between the two countries.
