Le petit flambeau

L'Autriche vue par un universitaire français…

Will Austrian tabloid journalists ever learn history and acknowledge their past?   


« Österreich », 19. Nov. 2018, p. 19

This is how an Austrian daily, Österreich, reports on a march commemorating the 80 years of the Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass, Reichspogromnacht) in its edition from November 9th (p. 19). The demonstration was part of the series of Thursdays protest marchs against the government where the extreme right party has the lead.

Titel: Protest paralyzed the whole city
In the middle of the second column: This time they also wanted to remember the Jews who were put in jail by the police during the November pogroms.
End of the article: Car drivers could only breathe again after 8pm. “The worst traffic chaos was then gone”, said the Austrian Touring Club representative Alfred Obermayr.

Well, the reality is quite different. It lasted in Vienna many days, more than 30 people died, 6.547 Viennese were arrested and more than 4.000 of them were then deported to the Dachau concentration camp. 42 synagogues were set on fire. But for the journalist of Österreich, the most important thing to report is the traffic-jam generated by the protest march.
