Andreas Count von Bernstorff

  • Right words. From Occident to Gypsy Schnitzel
  • Literature

“Volkszorn”, “Half Jew” and the like – that such terms come from the right is easy to recognize. But what about apparently neutral words like “migration”, “censorship” or “resistance”? And how racist is the term “race” itself?

Andreas von Bernstorff filters current key words of the German right from the stream of media and looks at them in daylight: What do they mean, where do they come from, and how do they work? From “Occident” to “climate mania” to “gypsy schnitzel”, the book takes a close look at right-wing concepts and everyday discrimination. In the process, surprising correlations become visible again and again, which cast a new light on many a seemingly harmless word.
Because: Whoever wants to stand up against rights must first understand them.

Andreas von Bernstorff is a consultant and lecturer for campaigning and strategic communication. He has been a teacher, journalist, member of the state parliament, organized international campaigns for Greenpeace and others, and was a lecturer at the universities of Heidelberg and St. Gallen, among others.
