"I know they exist ..." Contexts of young people's encounters with Jewish life

outh growing up and living in the German migration society is characterized by cultural, religious and ethnic diversity. Adolescents are considered the most heterogeneous population group and show the greatest openness to this diversity compared to other age groups.The sociopsychological contact hypothesis assumes that positive contact experiences reduce prejudice and therefore understands multi-ethnic peer relationships as educational spaces. Despite ongoing criticism of this approach, initiatives of encounter and intercultural confrontation continue to be discussed in large parts of pedagogy as means for educational processes.
