Chairwoman of the Board

Psychologist, psychological psychotherapist


I have been involved with TAMAD e.V. as a board member for many years, as I am convinced that educational mediation through art is an ideal way to promote communication between cultures, to break down prejudices and to experience mutual tolerance. From the beginning, I was inspired by the art education program for children at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Our children's peace project "The Art Road to Peace" is a creative and meaningful initiative to make the coexistence of Arab and Jewish children in Israel a bit more relaxed.

I feel a personal responsibility to support human contact and mutual understanding. Because these are the bridges to establish stable relationships and to keep peace. Positive experiences in childhood last a lifetime. The "Art Road to Peace" has touched and inspired me. I am therefore happy to support this beautiful initiative as a board member.

I have led the German Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art e.V. for over 16 years and continue to serve on the board, because I like to support Israel and make a positive contribution to German-Israeli relations.

The topics of civil courage, strengthening democracy and combating anti-Semitism have accompanied me for many years and also shaped my social commitment. Since I believe that personal encounters can contribute significantly to a better mutual understanding, I see it especially as a great opportunity to get involved with TAMAD e.V. for the children's peace project "The Art Road to Peace". As an art historian, I am firmly convinced of the special power of art and creative work.

Art historian

In a world that continues to be politically highly explosive, it is important to me to break down prejudices and a lack of understanding between different cultures and religious communities. I would like to support encounters between Jewish and Arab children and young people at TAMAD e.V. so that interest, understanding for the different and togetherness become possible. In the creative process, the medium of art has the ideal prerequisites for creating trust, tolerance and friendship together. Since I talk about many paintings in my profession in which the Old Testament plays an important role and parables of interpersonal coexistence and exemplary action are presented, it is my conviction to find answers to the questions about life through art.

Peace in Israel and the fight against anti-Semitism are especially important to me. That is why I am actively committed to this cause. Especially the German Circle of Friends creates the
best connection between art and the children's peace project to build a bridge. In the children stands our future, to hopefully achieve peace in the Middle East.
