The British inquest into the death of Jewish student Jeremiah Duggan in unexplained circumstances twelve years ago in Wiesbaden, Germany is to be held on the 19, 20 and 21st May. The purpose of this one-day symposium is to  explore two important issues – how to protect young people from the double-speak and manipulation of extremist political cults, included coded anti-Semitism; and an update on the institutional barriers faced by the Jeremiah Duggan family in their attempts to secure a full, rigorous and honest investigation from the German authorities.

Speakers include:

  • Erica and Hugo Duggan – Justice for Jeremiah campaign
  • Liz Fekete – Director, Institute of Race Relations
  • Professor Matthew Feldman – Centre for Fascist, Anti-Fascist and Post-Fascist studies, University of Teesside
