Nh: Nazi design exhibition

this evening (sunday 8th), 9.24-9.28pm, on bbc world service radio

newshour (presented by james menendez) includes …

“It sounds like a recipe for disaster – an exhibition about Nazi design in a Dutch city that during the Second World War played host to a notorious SS concentration camp. The exhibition, at the Design Museum in Den Bosch, is called Design of the Third Reich, and it features artwork architecture and media from Nazi Germany, and it has faced opposition: there was a small protest at the opening today, accusing the museum of glorifying fascism.”

“Today, we’re going to head to the north-eastern tip of Israel, to the Golan Heights. This is a small country, so from here, Jerusalem to the Golan, it’s about a two-and-a-half-hour drive, and it’s a stunning landscape. This is also occupied territory, but my goodness it feels so different to the West Bank.”
