Book Presentations

Particularly during the Leipzig Book Fair, but also in other contexts like the Jewish Week or the Long Night of Scholarship, the Dubnow Institute presents select publications from its own program. Both academic and non-academic audiences are invited to inform themselves about these new publications and to enter into a direct discussion with the authors concerning questions about Jewish history and culture.
