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.[1] It was edited by Ehrhardt in association with a board of five made up of Per Engdahl, Hans Oehler, Paul van Tienen, Erik Lærum and Erich Kern.[2]

In later years the publication became more closely associated with Deutsche Liga für Volk und Heimat. It was accused of giving space to Nazism[3][4] and was investigated by the German government to this end. It was also associated with Holocaust denial[5] and praised Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he announced a conference on the topic.[6] 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.[7]
