People, National Community, AfD (Volk, Volksgemeinschaft, AfD)
Book Presentation and Discussion with the Author Michael Wildt and Alexander Häusler (With Audio Recording; in German)
The "Alternative for Germany" (AfD) could be the first right-wing party to move into the Bundestag in over fifty years. What is the AfD’s vision of the people, nation, and society? And how should democratic forces handle this party’s antipluralistic ideas?
In his current book Volk, Volksgemeinschaft, AfD (People, National Community, AfD), the NS historian Michael Wildt examines these questions and illuminates the change of key concepts of our political order such as democracy (demos) and the people’s community (ethnos) from antiquity to today.
Following the book presentation, author Michael Wildt and expert on right-wing extremism Alexander Häusler will discuss the challenges associated with the current rightward shift in Germany and Europe.
