About Me

I was born in Vienna and grew up there as the daughter of Holocaust survivors. The story of my parents made me move to Israel in 1979. Dealing with Israel, questions of Jewish identity and antisemitism are among the central questions of my life and are closely intertwined with my professional career.


I am a lecturer, workshop facilitator and educational consultant dealing with Israeli society, antisemitism, the intergenerational impact of the Holocaust, Jewish and Israeli identity.


My most recent book “Nothing New in Europe? – Israelis look at Antisemitism today” has been published in 2021.

Over many years I have acquired expertise in communicating Israeli reality in all its complexity to international groups, by cooperating with public adult and youth education institutions, universities, civil society organizations and Holocaust memorials.
