A Radio Svoboda round-table discussion. Nationalism: from Hitler’s Germany to Putin’s Russia.
In the context of the films “Austerlitz” (dir. Sergei Loznitsa) and “Credit for Murder” (dir. Vladi Antonevic), the debate will examine the ways nationalism manifests itself in Europe and Russia.
Every vaccine has a limited period of effect. Although each vaccine is important to the body, it does not guarantee an eternal life. The vaccine received by the public after the apprehension of the impact of the Nazi regime on Germany begins to lose its efficiency. It begins to dissolve into our memory and consciousness.
Concentration camps, which after opening to the public embodied shock and horror, have now become tourist attractions. Meanwhile in the modern Russia the government uses nationalism to meet their needs and create tension in the society.
The creators of the programme wish to ask a question: have we been too quick to forget the danger of nationalism?
The films to be discussed:
Credit for Murder (dir. Vladi Antonevic)
Austerlitz (dir. Sergei Loznitsa)
