The Swede who spent a year undercover with the far-right

Patrik Hermansson: After a while you get numb to the strong hate
8:17 min

Patrik Hermansson is gay, feminist and anti-fascist. The 25-year-old graduate student tells Radio Sweden about the most frightening year of his life, going undercover to capture the world of far-right extremists using a hidden camera.

Patrik Hermansson was given the task of infiltrating the alt-right movement of Nazi and racist groups in the United States and the UK by the anti-racist group Hope not Hate.

His footage shot by a hidden camera is currently being edited into a film.

Posing as a disillusioned Swedish student, dissatisfied with the way "left wing Sweden was heading under mass immigration", he gained the trust and confidence of some of the biggest names in the alt-right movement.
