A Holocaust survivors plea to the people of Austria has gone viral ahead of the countrys presidential election. Gertrude, known only by her first name, has appealed to Austrians not to allow the far-right Freedom Party to gain power. In the video published on Facebook she says that the actions of the Freedom Party and its candidate Norbert Hofer are similar to that of the Nazis in Austria and Germany in the 1930s. It’s the humiliation of others, the demonisation of others, that alarms me the most. And that was the case once before, she said. Austrias presidential vote re-run is on 4 December and if Hofer wins, he will be the European Unions first far-right head of state.

He will now contest next springs presidential election.With votes from four-fifths of 10,228 polling stations counted, Fillon, who went into the second-round run-off as firm favourite, had won over 67% of the vote in a head-to-head battle with another ex-prime minister, Alain Juppe.All eyes now turn to the ruling Socialist party and to whether President Francois Hollande will decide to run for the left-wing ticket in his partys primaries in January.Opinion polls suggest neither he nor any left-wing candidate would make the second round of the presidential election itself next May, leaving Fillon a clear run at the anti-EU, anti-immigration National Front leader Le Pen that the surveys predict him to win.
