This year, Austria is commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Anschluss, the country’s annexation by Nazi Germany. For decades Austria presented itself as a victim of Adolf Hitler, before recognising in the 1990s its active role in the Holocaust. But today, many fear the collective memory could be threatened by the rise to power of the FPÖ. The far-right party founded in 1956 by former Nazis is part of the ruling coalition and has already been caught up in a series of anti-Semitism scandals.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Gaëlle Essoo.
