The Jewish History Compact podcast (Jüdische Geschichte Kompakt) is a joint project of the IGdJ and the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies (MMZ) in Potsdam. On the podcast channel, you can get to know individual research projects on German-Jewish history and the present in more detail and gain new perspectives on what is supposedly old news. In different series, you can take a look at the broad field of German-Jewish history as if looking through a keyhole, and at the same time learn new and interesting things about our country and our history in the comfort of your own home or while traveling.
The individual series are produced sometimes coordinated by the IGdJ in Hamburg, sometimes by the MMZ in Potsdam, so that you not only gain access to the respective research projects on site, but also insights into supra-regional discussions and discourses of Jewish historical research. Time and again, therefore, interesting discussion partners can be listened to as guests, as a result of which the “Jewish History Compact” podcast channel also serves as a place for exchanging knowledge. In addition, individual special episodes are also scheduled, such as the “Weihnukka” (“Chrismukkah”) episodes published at the end of the years 2020 and 2021, which introduce IGdJ and MMZ staff members to you not only as researchers, but also as readers.
On the first Friday of every month, a new episode of the podcast goes online, providing a fresh look at Jewish history and the Jewish present. In the accompanying text, you also receive further information on the respective topics. You can find our podcast channel at the following internet address: https://juedischegeschichtekompakt.podigee.io or on all common podcast platforms, e.g., Spotify, Google or Apple Podcast, Deezer, etc. All podcast episodes are in German.
We hope you’ll enjoy listening in. Stay healthy and interested, hear you there!
