One year after the attack in Hanau, the Federal President wants to make it clear that the victims of the racially motivated act have not been forgotten.
On the anniversary of the attack in Hanau that left nine dead, Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier wishes to express his sympathy in the city today to relatives of those who died and make a stand against racism and right-wing extremism.
Alongside Hesse Prime Minister Volker Bouffier (CDU), Mayor of Hanau Claus Kaminsky (SPD), survivors and bereaved families, Steinmeier will take part in a memorial service in Hanau. On Thursday evening, almost 3,000 people had already commemorated the victims of the attack in a demonstration through Frankfurt’s city centre. Demonstrators repeatedly chanted “Hanau was no isolated incident”.
