So, I've started my experiment of being Jewish in Germany by wearing a Kippah now. I will wear this skullcap every time I leave the house for at least a week now. Honestly, I was disappointed by the beginning of this exercise though. Apart from stupid jokes by my friends I didn't hear one comment all evening. I did have the impression that some people - mostly punks or other blatantly left-wing guys - smiled at me more than they usually would have. It will be interesting how this will develop and I am kind of excited about it, but so far the experiment has been rather uneventful, which - considering I am trying to see how antisemitic German society - is good news.
