Although Hamburg is not a hot-spot for right-wing extremism, city authorities have still 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, as well as provide support for those facing victimisation. Several initiatives provide counselling for victims of discrimination and racism.
Please note that you should always alert the police in cases of racism, violence, vandalism or other crimes, whether you were a victim or a witness.
For more information, please visit the programme's official website (in German).
