Nation Europa (also called Nation und Europa) was a monthly right-wing[1] magazine, published in Germany. It was founded in 1951 and was based in Coburg until its closure in 2009. It is also the name of the publishing house that develops the magazine (Nation Europa Verlag).

History[edit]

Founded by former SS commander Arthur Ehrhardt and Herbert Boehme, it took its title from a phrase sometimes used by Oswald Mosley to describe his Europe a Nation vision. Adopting a European-wide vision, writers such as Gaston-Armand Amaudruz and Maurice Bardèche were closely associated with the publication. Initially its largest single shareholder was Swedish neo-Nazi and former Olympic athlete Carl-Ehrenfried Carlberg.[2] It was edited by Ehrhardt in association with a board of five made up of Per Engdahl, Hans Oehler, Paul van Tienen, Erik Laerum and Erich Kern.[3]

In later years the publication would become more closely associated with Deutsche Liga für Volk und Heimat. The publication has been accused of giving space to Nazism[4][5] and has been investigated by the German government to this end. It has also been associated with Holocaust denial[6] and praised Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he announced a conference on the topic.[7] The magazine was renamed Nation und Europa in 1990[citation needed]. In 2000 Nation und Europa was merged with 'Lesen und Schenken'. They later publish a new journal of current affairs, Zuerst!, with Nation und Europa closed in 2009.[8]
