"Why Old Enemy Images Are Revived"

Helga Embacher, contemporary historian: "Corona, Verschwörungsfantasien und Antisemitismus. Why old enemy images are reviving". In the Corona pandemic, conspiracy myths are booming. World conspiracy myths are coming to life with fantasies that secret powers are deliberately spreading the virus in order to gain control over people. Opponents of Corona measures demonstrate with the Star of David and thus relativize the Holocaust. The contemporary historian Helga Embacher discusses with the journalist Maria Mayer. The event takes place on April 19, 7 p.m., online: https://PANORMA-UNI.AT
