Bestselling author and Nazi hunter Tobias Ginsburg goes on tour: a wild mixture of comedy and staged reading, fast-paced talk and anti-fascism, human abysses and inappropriate jokes.
For his books, Ginsburg infiltrates undercover where it is better not to set foot: He infiltrated right-wing extremist groups all over the world, sneaked into fascist fraternities, neo-Nazis and all kinds of right-wing scene figures, lived among anti-democrats, anti-Semites and misanthropes. In his program "Die Reise in Reich" (The Journey into Empire), he talks about his research among Reich citizens and conspiracy addicts, his life among brown esotericists, in sects and broken kingdoms, of militant overthrow fantasies and fanatics who today sit in the Bundestag for the AfD. And he talks about a forgetful Germany that welcomes fascism back.
The stories Tobias tells are as frightening as they are funny - and they tell of dangers that are much closer to us all than we might like to believe.
"Perceptive, amusing, and at the same time, it leaves you breathless." Arte Journal
"A maddeningly funny book. Tobias Ginsburg tells of this truly threatening scene as a man of letters and enlightenment." Günter Wallraf
"Mixing research results with stage performance is perhaps something no author can do as well as Ginsburg." RBB
