Why you should go. Join the French Consulate for a thought-provoking discussion with Serge and Beate Klarsfeld, historic figures and famous Nazi hunters, who symbolize the fight against hatred and fanaticism. Together, they will trace their background and address issues of anti-semitism and the current rise of populism in France and Europe.
