It has been almost 55 years since Germany and Israel reluctantly entered into diplomatic relations in the spring of 1965. What at first glance seems to be a rather unlikely relationship, especially in light of the shared history, has evolved, over time, into a blossoming friendship and successful economic bond. In order for this to happen, Germany had to face its Nazi legacy and subsequent collective guilt. Join German Historian Anette Isaacs, MA as she discusses how her native country has attempted to cope with the guilt of causing the Holocaust and how this painful but necessary process heralded a new era in German-Israeli relations.
