Hamburg against right-wing extremism

Social Hamburg Against Right-Wing Extremism

The City of Hamburg has made it a priority to prevent prejudice, act against xenophobic ideologies and support victims of discrimination.

Hamburg Against Right-Wing Extremism

Even though Hamburg is not a hot-spot for right-wing extremism, the city authorities have taken a number of measures to reduce the breeding ground for extreme right-wing ideologies and to help those who wish to exit the scene. In addition, several initiatives provide counselling for victims of discrimination and racism. Please note that you should always notify the police in case you have witnessed or been victim to racism, violence, vandalism or other crimes.

For more information, please visit the programme's official website (in German).
