Germany: Far-right publisher Antaios basks in popularity at Frankfurt Book Fair

Publishing house Antaios, known for its far-right leanings, opened its stall at Frankfurt book fair for the first time in the fair's history, Saturday, with attendees flocking to its stall and ongoing protests against its presence. On its Facebook page, Antaios reported that some of its books and merchandise were stolen since they opened. However, the publishing house founder and editor Gotz... Еще Kubitschek is certain that the «negative reaction» worked for their benefit. «I believe that in proportion to square metres our stall has had possibly the most visitors and has certainly generated the most publicity,» said Kubitschek. Protesters reportedly wrote an open letter to the fair organisers asking to remove the controversial publishing house from the list of exhibitors. Some 7,300 exhibitors from more 100 countries will be represented at this year's Frankfurt Book Fair, which is considered to the world's largest trade fair for books. Around 270,000 visitors are expected to attend the fair. The Frankfurt Book Fair will run until October 15.
