HJ Hansen has published numerous scientific papers, mostly in magazines and travel works in a dozen countries, but he has also published the writings of military-political and socio-critical content, which made him widely seen as a heretic. These included to 'Danish national defense readiness, "controversy about Danish nationality and identity, the" Jew question "and patriotism. Hansen published example pamphlet Jewish problem in 1923, a strong anti-Semitic and nationalistic writing. The pamphlet was published by the association Danish Association for Fremmedelementers limitation (which later changed its name to Dane-League) publishers. It was one of those days strongly anti-Semitic and right-wing extremist groups.

DISCLAIMER — This resource was first intended as for private use of the members of the arachnology lab of Museu Nacional, but later we thought "why not to share this with the world?". Eventually if greedy lawyers (redundance...) start to bother us with copyright matters, etc, we may have to be forced to quit the project and keep this just to ourselves.
