FPÖ holds celebration of victory over Ottoman Empire

The event was organised to stress the need to defend the “Western world” from invaders.
On a controversial poster, they wrote: “Abendland Beschutzen Damals Wie Heute (To protect the Western World – in the past as well as today).”
The event is taking place on 12th September at Vienna’s Palais Ferstl to mark the defeat in September 1683 of 100,000 soldiers from the Ottoman Empire.
The soldiers had already started to take the Austrian capital Vienna which was defended by only 10,000 Habsburg soldiers when Polish horsemen attacked them from the rear and devastated the Turkish army – which was forced to retreat.
It marked the end of the Turks’ attempts to expand westwards with a defeat from which the army never recovered.
The commemoration comes at a delicate time for Austria as the country already finds itself in the middle of a diplomatic row with Turkey.
