June 24, 2022 will be the 100th anniversary of the murder of German foreign minister Walther Rathenau. In a startling literary reportage, journalist and author Thomas Hüetlin revisits the events that led to that fateful act. Berlin, June 24, 1922 narrates the chronology of that tragic day in German history and the political consequences that reverberate until today. We dive into a murky world of toxic, elitist, anti-Semitic groups of men and their respectable supporters in the military, politics and the justice system, whose deeds were more than a prelude to the later seizure of power by the Nazis. The ideological parallels with today’s right-wing extremists and their supporters are worrying.
Hüetlin talks with Green Party politician Cem Özdemir about current threats to democracy and how they must be confronted. Host: Thomas Laue
