Statement | Attack in Hanau, Germany

Last night a murderous attack took place in Hanau, Germany. This attack left ten victims dead and others injured and was motivated by far-right extremism and racism. Holocaust Education Trust Ireland condemns yet another far-right murder in Germany. The murder of Walter Lübcke in June of last year, the assault in Halle on Yom Kippur and now the murder in Hanau are fed from the same roots.

Our deep sadness and sympathy go out to the victims and their families. We wish the injured a speedy recovery.
