With a. o.:

Martín Steinhagen, Journalist („Rechter Terror. Der Mord an Walter Lübcke und die Strategie der Gewalt“ / “The murder of Walter Lübcke and strategies of violence”)

Moderation: Dietrich Brants, SWR2

The perpetrator of Hanau was an academic, studied at an elite faculty, was a member of a traditional Munich club, grew up owning terraced houses and had a middle class background. How does such a business economist radicalise himself from the middle of society to become a right-wing terrorist – really only via the internet? What role do role models play for the new type of perpetrator? And what responsibility do the classical media, from SPIEGEL to BILD, bear? How deeply is racism really anchored in the middle of society?

The event takes place in the context of the exhibition Three Doors – Forensic Architecture/Forensis, Initiative 19. Februar Hanau, Initiative in Gedenken an Oury Jalloh and is part of the Forum kollektiver Wahrheitsfindung.

Pre-registration via email to post(at) The event is free of charge and takes place in German.
