Stockholm : On Extremism (MINI)

We are taking a small break from our regularly scheduled programming to give listeners a little taste of the mini episodes that Patreon subscribers receive every other week. That's right, for subscribers Here There Be Dragons is a weekly podcast. Support us at: https://www.patreon.com/htbdpodcast You might remember that in episode 2, The Malms, we interviewed a Swedish-Chilean woman, Paulina Torres. If you haven’t listened to that episode, you might want to go and listen to it. Paulina told us about a traumatizing experience she had when she was about 16 or 17, in 1996. She was in the metro with her mother and grandfather when they got attacked by a mob of neo-nazis. Her story made it all the way to public radio. A well-known Swedish reporter Bosse Lindquist got in touch with Paulina. Together they tried to get answers from the police who just would not follow up on Paulina’s complaint. Today on the mini, we talk with Bosse Lindquist about what happened to Paulina in 1996 and more generally about the rise of neo-nazism in Sweden in the 1990s.
