Habitus is a magazine of international Jewish culture and a Jewish magazine about the world that speaks to anyone who feels the pull of complex identities and biographies and wrestles with what it means to be truly at home.

Spaces of Memory from Berlin to New York: A Conversation with James Young
In conjunction with the launch of the Habitus issue on Jewish life in Berlin, we are privileged to present James E. Young, an international authority on memory and memorial architecture, author and professor of English and Judaic Studies at the University of Massachusetts. A juror for the World Trade Center memorial and the only non-German on the committee to create Berlin’s “Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe,” Young will join us for a conversation about his work in Berlin, the lessons he brought to lower Manhattan, and the role of Jews and the Holocaust in the public life of contemporary Germany. Followed by a reception. Co-sponsored with The German Consulate General in New York.
