Just over 25 years ago, in a place very close to Vienna (in Australian eyes) – Brussels, a huge gathering of politicians, diplomats, Jewish leaders, civil society, intellectuals, academics and activists, convened to celebrate a new era – after the fall of the Soviet Union – in which antisemitism had been relegated to the gutters […]
