JFF Lecture

On May 20, during the Zagreb Jewish Film Festival, I lectured about  “Symbols of Hate”
The lecture dealt with local and regional issues of suppression, ignorance of visual symbols 
and the hate speech of neo-Nazi groups (skinheads, neo-Nazis and radical soccer fans), 
which have recently increased in strength, in frequency and in violence.

The event was attended by many students. There was a lively debate after the lecture 
amongst the professors and students that lasted almost as long as the lecture itself. 
This was pretty unusual, but encouraging.
