Germany was one of the main architects of the European Union. How will Britain’s exit from that body impact the vision of a united Europe, and does it presage serious differences in foreign policy in general, and towards Israel
in particular, since other countries do not share Germany’s deep-seated commitment to Israel or Britain’s close ties to the United States? Immediately after Ambassador Ruenger’s talk, we will open the Zionismus exbibit at the College’s Addlestone Library at 11:45am. Ambassador Ruenger will deliver introductory remarks.

A native of Hannover, Germany, Consul General Detlev Ruenger joined the German Consulate in Atlanta in July, 2015, after serving as German Ambassador to Austria (2012-2015) and Norway (2009-2012). Consul General Ruenger received a law degree in 1981 from the University of Hannover. He is joined in Atlanta by his wife and their two children.
