Ep. 28: Nazism, art, and questioning free speech

What does it mean to ‘censor’ or ‘ban’ forbidden Nazi symbols, art, and books like Mein Kampf in present-day Germany? And more to the point, is this even possible? In this first episode of our new series, ‘Controversies & Contraband’, Dr Banu Karaca explains the hidden impact of Hitler’s Nazi dictatorship on censorship laws in Germany, and whether freedom of expression and/or free speech is only limited to certain topics that are labelled ‘inherently good’ according to Germany’s liberal democracy.
