Press Information published by the International Auschwitz Committee


The Federal Minister of the Interior must take a stand at last and investigate right-wing extremist incidents within the police forces

The International Auschwitz Committee renews its urgent demand for an independent investigative commission to look into the right-wing extremist incidents within the police.

In Berlin Christoph Heubner, Executive Vice President of the International Auschwitz Committee, stated:

“The Holocaust survivors are extremely disappointed that especially in the current situation, and despite the mounting findings, there is still no sign of a joint resolution by the responsible ministers in the federation and the states. The Holocaust survivors are deeply concerned by the increase in right-wing extremist incidents within the police forces of various federal states in Germany. They are angered not only by the repeated glorification in chat groups of Nazi rule, but also by the indifference and efforts to look away by members of the police who were aware of these activities.

Since it is no longer simply a question of isolated cases, it is high time for the federation and the states to set up an investigative commission that includes independent experts. This commission of inquiry should start work without delay. It will also be in the interest of the majority of police officers who are committed to democracy and are sick of living under a constant bombardment of generalized suspicions and accusations.

The Federal Minister of the Interior is well advised to take a stand at last, together with his counterparts in the individual states.”
