The Post-Racial Age Has Arrived in Germany
September 1, 2009 - Politically Incorrect
…or: About people born on the right side. Twice. The post-racial message of America’s President Obama has finally arrived in Germany. How have we survived so long without it? The director of the publicly funded “Workshop of Cultures” (Werkstatt der Kulturen), “theatermaker” and ethnologist Philippa Ebéné (picture), decided Thursday to remove educational panels covering the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini from a planned exhibition at her premises to the disgust of a district mayor, the curator of theexhibit and the Berlin Jewish community.

The exhibit covers the immensely topical issue “The Third World during the Second World War” and three of 96 exhibit panels are dedicated to the REALLY topical issue of the mufti’s collaboration with the Nazis who had a decisive influence on the Holocaust (we reported manytimes already). Ebéné stated that she refused to display the information on Husseini out of respect for joint Arab organizations. Her decision was supported by migration commissioner of the Berlin Senate, Günter Piening. In a neighborhood (heavily dominated by Muslims) like Neukölln a “differentiated presentation” was paramount, Piening stated.
