In den Hauptrollen: XR, der Westend Verlag, die Buchmesse und die völkische Marburger Burschenschaft Germania.
2) Doch zunächst: Was ist Querfront?
3) „Im historischen Sinn werden als Querfront anti-demokratische Strategien bezeichnet, welche die gegensätzlichen Ideologien des Nationalismus und des Sozialismus verbanden, um in der Weimarer Republik die politische Macht übernehmen zu können“, so steht es bei Wikipedia.

Some other thoughts on the new work finding #Marburg in bats in Sierra Leone (reuters.com/article/us-leo…). There has long been evidence that filoviruses are present in areas that haven't seen outbreaks. /1
Even before big outbreak 2013-2016 in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, there was evidence #Ebola was present in W. Africa. One, a single case of a different filovirus (Tai Forest) in Côte d’Ivoire, and two, seroprevalence studies, eg this diagram from nytimes.com/2015/04/21/hea… /2
You can see lots of areas where #Ebola antibodies were found in the population, but big outbreaks have not been detected. The countries affected weren't on there, but others nearby were (Senegal, Togo, Benin). Problem is, seroprevalence studies are really tough. /3
