The conversation between two witnesses of the century: Walter Kasper, German theologian and cardinal, spent many years as the head of the Vatican Commission of the Holy See for Religious Relations with the Jews. Rabbi Henry Brandt, who has been the chairman of the General Rabbinical Conference of Germany since 2004, has been committed to the Jewish-Christian conversation for decades. Both are witnesses of 20th century history, a century full of wars and crimes against humanity. Many people experienced it as an epoch of »God’s absence«. In a conversation with the FAZ newspaper journalist and historian Jörg Bremer, they join in examining the question of what »God’s presence« means for Jews and Christians today. With a foreword by the German Ambassador to the Holy See, Annette Schavan.
