Publication: "Politische Bildung in reaktionären Zeiten"

For the Wochenschau Verlag I illustrated the handbook "Politische Bildung in reaktionären Zeiten: Plädoyer für eine standhafte Schule" ("Political Education in Reactionary Times: Plea for a Steadfast School") as well as the cover and 32 real case studies of right-wing extremist interference in everyday German school life.

 

Because unfortunately we must not be under any illusions: Right-wing extremist and racist groups and parties are already causing massive attacks on our free, democratic education system.

 

I think an important book in difficult times.
