FTR #135 Update on Germany

Lis­ten:
One seg­ment

This pro­gram updates and/or presents a num­ber of sto­ries con­cern­ing Ger­man pow­er pol­i­tics and Ger­man fas­cism. Begin­ning with analy­sis of Ger­man lit­er­ary giant Goethe’s spy­ing on the pol­i­tics of his uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents, the pro­gram con­tin­ues with dis­cus­sion of a nation­al­is­tic speech by a recip­i­ent of the Book Trade’s Peace Prize that indi­cat­ed Ger­man will­ing­ness to dis­so­ci­ate from the con­cept of nation­al respon­si­bil­i­ty for the Third Reich. Next, the broad­cast high­lights the new min­is­ter of cul­tur­al affairs, Michael Nau­mann (pre­vi­ous­ly CEO of Hen­ry Holt & Co.). After dis­cus­sion of fric­tion between Ger­many, Holo­caust sur­vivors and the Unit­ed King­dom over trade mat­ters, the pro­gram sets forth con­nec­tions between the milieu of vet­er­an Ger­man Nazi Karl Polacek and indi­vid­u­als from the Waf­fen SS, SA and the orga­ni­za­tion of Karl­heinz Hoff­man, a Nazi ter­ror­ist impli­cat­ed in the 1980 Munich Octo­ber­fest bomb­ing. (Record­ed in Feb­ru­ary of 1999.)
