“Not since the creation of the Asterix comics have national prejudices entered our culture in such an entertaining way”, wrote Daniel-C. Schmidt in his review of the German edition of the Atlas of Prejudice, published on the Spiegel Online website.
One month after that, maps from the book also appeared in the print version of the popular German magazine, accompanying an article titled “Lokomotive ohne Abhänger”, a contemplation about Germany’s reputation across the European Union. One of those maps, Europe According to Luxembourg, was created especially for the occasion.
Those who have difficulties understanding German shouldn’t feel left behind. The international web site of Spiegel prepared a special 10 piece gallery with the maps in good old Shakespearean English.
