The Intercept is a First Look Media Company.
When the Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Peter Handke in 2019, The Intercept played a key role in exposing his denial of the genocide in Bosnia. This collection contains all the articles written by Peter Maass.
Protesters gathered in central Stockholm to bear witness to the endorsement of genocide denialism by the Nobel Prize for Literature.
At a press conference, Peter Handke refused to answer my questions about the Bosnian genocide, saying they were “empty” and “ignorant.”
When Peter Handke visited Bosnia in 1998, he stayed at a horrifying landmark: a hotel used by Serbs during the war as a rape camp.
The Swedish Academy, which chose Peter Handke for the Nobel literature prize, issued a letter casting his Bosnia war books as reasonable.
The Nobel jurors relied on two books that defend Handke by citing a theory that the Serb genocide of Muslims was a myth created by a PR firm.
