INITIAL SITUATION

Every day, people are insulted, threatened and excluded under right-wing motivations. Bodily attacks happen again and again. The victims are in particular such people who are deprived of their rights in daily life, such as foreigners, alternative young people, but also homeless, handicapped or homosexual people.

Many people do not only suffer from the bodily damage which is done to them but also suffer from fears and feel torn from their everyday life.

Many victims are only little or not at all familiar with the German legal system with which they are confronted after a violent incident. They may have to do for example with the police or a court and will have to make certain decisions. The Victims' Aid Center of Dessau wants to support you in finding your way in a non-standard situation.

 

OUR OFFERS

If we are informed of a right-wing attack, we contact the victims. The Victims' Aid Center helps victims to overcome the consequences of an attack and will, together with the victims, develop new perspectives for them.

If you have become the victim of a right-wing attack, please contact us. We can meet at a place of your choice or in our office in Dessau Parkstraße. Then we can jointly see how we can support you.
