Why a tribunal in Nuremberg?
Unravel the NSU Complex!
“If the court is honest, it will also say that gaps remained. As long as these gaps remain, my family and I cannot sleep peacefully,” with these words Gamze Kubaşık commented on the verdict in the NSU trial in Munich in July 2018. The verdict was a slap in the face for many relatives of the murder victims and survivors of the attacks. The tireless attempts of the joint plaintiffs to expose the support of the perpetrators by local right-wing networks as well as the state’s involvement in the NSU Complex were not taken into account in the verdict. The court supported the untenable trio thesis and left central questions unanswered.
Why another tribunal?
We say “No closure!” and demand answers.
The tribunals in Cologne 2017, Mannheim 2018 and Chemnitz 2019 stood in solidarity with the affected persons. They indicted the responsible institutions such as the police and the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, as well as individuals. They made clear that the acts were committed by a neo-Nazi network with local supporters. They called out the racist reporting of numerous media as well as the racist investigations of the police after all murders as central components of the NSU Complex. The tribunals pointed to structural racism and antisemitism as enabling conditions for right-wing terror. Today, four years after the end of the NSU trial, after the attacks at the OEZ in Munich in July 2016, in Halle in October 2019 and in Hanau in
February 2020, we are convinced: accusations are no longer enough. We demand change!
Why a Tribunal “Unravelling the NSU Complex” in Bavaria?
Enver Şimşek, Abdurrahim Özüdoğru, Habil Kılıç, İsmail Yaşar, Theodoros Boulgarides – five of the NSU’s ten victims were murdered in Bavaria. The NSU attack on the Pilsbar Sonnenschein, in which Mehmet O. was seriously injured, took place in Nuremberg. Local right-wing networks, without whose support the acts would be inconceivable, continue to exist to this day and have not had to fear prosecution. The racist police investigations, which contributed to the fact that the perpetrators were able to murder unchallenged for years, were coordinated in Bavaria. The racist media coverage of the NSU murders was significantly shaped by the Nürnberger Zeitung. Many of the unanswered questions concentrate in Bavaria.
The controversies surrounding the NSU Complex have sharpened the focus on the continuities of right-wing, racist and anti-Semitic terror. More than 70 murders were committed in Bavaria alone.

and all further victims.
Public remembrance and commemoration of the victims has been almost non-existent. It took 40 years for the Oktoberfest bombing to be officially recognized as a right-wing terrorist attack. It has taken 40 years for a place of remembrance to be created for the victims in Munich that takes the experiences and perspectives of the survivors and relatives as its starting point. Some of them have been demanding this since 1981 and have continuously fought for it.
On July 22, 2016 – while the NSU trial was ongoing in Munich – an extreme right-wing perpetrator shot nine people at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum (OEZ) in Munich: Armela Segashi, Sabina Sulaj, Can Leyla, Selçuk Kılıç, Janos Roberto Rafael, Hüseyin Dayıcık, Giuliano Kollmann, Dijamant Zabërgja, Sevda Dağ. Prompted by relatives, it took a threeyear struggle before the initial language of “rampage” was changed and the act was recognized as extreme right-wing. The actions of the perpetrator as well as the actions of the police show frightening parallels to what happened three years later in Halle and shortly thereafter in Hanau. In the public consciousness, the attack at the OEZ has not yet been anchored as a racist, anti-Muslim as well as gadjé-racist terrorist attack. Again, the relatives remain alone with their grief and anger as well as with their demands.
In many places, nothing commemorates the people who were murdered by extreme right-wing perpetrators. Some of the crimes are still not officially recognized today. The Tribunal “Unravelling the NSU Complex” wants to make visible the extent, the continuities and consequences of right-wing, racist and anti-Semitic terror in Bavaria. We remember the victims and stand in solidarity with their relatives, friends as well as the survivors.
Acknowledge. Elucidate. Change.
After the NSU exposed itself, 22 people were murdered in attacks in Munich, Kassel, Halle and Hanau within four years. In addition, the NSU 2.0 threatened lawyers, politicians, artists and journalists.
No more empty promises, trivialization and depoliticization of the crimes. Something must finally change.
At the tribunal “Unravelling the NSU-Complex” in Nuremberg, demands for change are the essential. We want to show these in their diversity and strength and carry them together into the public.
Let’s make the society of the many and struggles for self-assertion and memory together unmissable! No further victim! Let’s break the continuities of right-wing terror!

TRBNL Goes Nürnberg
Bavaria, especially Nuremberg, must take responsibility for enabling racist violence. This includes acknowledging the perspectives of the survivors, their struggles and the day-to-day realities of their lives. We start at three different places in the community, where, encouraged by the words of long-time activists, we collectively grieve the victims of right-wing violence in Bavaria, and together with Tribunalistas of the previous tribunals, attempt to break the continuities of right-wing terror. Afterwards, we will celebrate the society of the many with live music so that it cannot be overseen.

Film Programme: Blank spaces – Remembering and Forgetting in Nuremberg
Tiefenschärfe (Depth of Field) reads the markings of the locations in Nuremberg where the so-called NSU committed three murders between 2000 and 2005. As a formal element, the fathomless nature of the deeds repeatedly throws the horizontal axis of the picture out of sync.
Weißer Fleck (“White Spot”) examines the so-called “Russenwiese” (Russian field) on the outskirts of Nuremberg. The forest clearing is particularly popular with dog owners and walkers. There is nothing on site which alludes to its past as the site of a WWII “work education camp”.

Right-Wing Violence in Bavaria – History, Topicality, and Counter Strategies
Right-wing violence has a long history in Bavaria. Its dimensions, however, are hardly known to the dominant groups of society. Politics, media, and law enforcement authorities have repeatedly downplayed or ignored right-wing violence and the underlying ideologies of inequality. Victims have frequently been turned into perpetrators. The panel will address the history and presence of right-wing, racist, and antisemitic violence in Bavaria and its effects. We also want to discuss the experiences and prospects of resistance and practices of solidarity against right-wing terror and its social entrenchment.

Critical Walk: Racist Terror in Nuremberg
The attack on the discotheque Twenty Five in 1982 with 3 deaths is marginalized in public discourse. The same applies to the bomb attack on the pub Sonnenschein in 1999 by the NSU with one seriously injured victim. The ignorance testifies to a lack of awareness of the continuity of right-wing terror and favours deficient elucidation. We will visit crime and memorial sites, discuss local remembrance and demand complete elucidation.

Solidary Trial Support for Those Affected by Racist Violence
Cologne in January 2022 – a CDU politician who shot at a teenager in December 2019 was sentenced to prison without probation for grievous bodily harm, among other things. The racist reason of the offender aggravated the sentence. The initiative Tatort Porz supported the person affected by this criminal offence from the beginning, who also appeared as joint plaintiff in court. We want to share this experience and discuss the possibilities of successful trial support.

How Can Commemoration Remain Critical? Networking Workshop for Commemoration Initiatives
In various places, initiatives or individual activists try to remember victims of right-wing violence and to commemorate those who were murdered. In this workshop we wish to create a space for networking and discussion. Among other things, we want to handle the following questions: How can victims and other affected people become the starting point for commemoration, even if little is known about them or there is no contact to them or surviving dependants? How can commemoration remain critical and promote public remembrance and commemoration, but counteract co-optation by municipal or state actors? What forms of action are there beyond anniversaries? And finally, what can joint forms of action look like? How can new connections be created?

Political education work – what next?
This two-hour workshop aims to create a space for networking and exchange between people working in political education. We want to focus on if and how we can achieve our political goals with educational work? Is educational work just a means to an end? What does it mean to us? What are our political demands as initiatives, associations or groups? In which ways do we try to participate through political education work and how can we succeed in the long term? In the course of our workshop we want to discuss all of these questions, exchange experiences and learn from one another.

Digital Memorial #telltheirstories, part 1
#telltheirstories is a digital memorial for the lives of the murdered victims of right-wing violence and terror in Germany since the reunification. Initially designed by the artist Ülkü Süngün, developed as a prototype with the collectives CodeRat and Zoff as well as Fides Schopp, it can only be completed collectively with initiatives, families and friends of victims and supporters. The goal is to establish a nationwide network and the visibility of marginalized biographies as part of non-hegemonic historical narratives.
The concept of #telltheirstories, as well as database functions and possibilities of use will be presented and following questions will be discussed together in the follow-up discussion: Which terms will be used, which information should be included in the database, who decides about it? What support structure for the website going online on 3.10.22 will fullfill requirements of a collective and inclusive memorial? In group work, existing information on victims can be incorporated into the database on-site.
With thanks to Opferperspektive e.V. and the Amadeu Antonio Foundation. Prototype production funding: Haus der Geschichte Baden-Württemberg, Kulturamt Stuttgart.

KollektivNaiv: A Collective Quest for Questions
KollektivNaiv is an artist collective. In changing constellations of people, they work on topics, that are fascinating to them. Naive in this context means being unbiased and open minded. This workshop gives a small insight to the artistic methods and workflow (posing questions, types of research, collective work, finding a form) which the group uses, to then immediately apply them together naively and collectively to the questions, that arise in the context of the NSU tribunal.

Systematic Elucidation! That remains the demand of those affected by right-wing terrorist attacks. Investigation of the crimes, but also explanation of the crimes. The grief, anger and demands of many survivors are still not heard enough. Here there will be space for this – a space for demands and exchange of ideas. Speakers include: Gamze Kubaşık and Semiya Şimşek; Mehmet O., who was seriously injured in the NSU attack on his Pilsbar Sonnenschein in Nuremberg; and victims of the attack on the Olympia Shopping Centre (OEZ) in Munich. This attack is still described as a killing spree, although it was a right-wing and racist act of terrorism.

Street festival against racism and discrimination – for a better coexistence
For the past 7 years, the street festival has been held annually by a broad alliance at Aufseßplatz. The idea: remember the people who were murdered by the NSU, make the solidarity clear and take it to the streets. That is why the festival takes place every year around the anniversary of the deaths of İsmail Yaşar and Abdurrahim Özüdoǧru in the south of Nuremberg. Many different groups put their differences in the background and emphasize what connects them: the fight for a city free of racism and discrimination, in which peaceful coexistence and solidarity is possible. This has created a unique festival that is about content, not profit.
The workshop is held by Junge Stimme e.V., the group that initiated the festival.

Jùlie Halilic is proud when she thinks of her grandfather. Wallani Georg, together with other civil rights activists, fought for the recognition of the mass murder of the Sinti and Roma as genocide in 1982. It began with an occupation of the Dachau concentration camp memorial. A film about history that is not over, about a time that continues to have an effect today.

Mani-fest is not a one-off intervention, but rather a preview of a better future.

Anike Joyce Sadiq: Flags for “Visited by a Tiger”
Schematic representations of a hand on three flags in the garden of the Art Foundation: outstretched, fingers placed over the thumb or clenched into a fist. With her project Flags for “Visited by a Tiger”, Anike Joyce Sadiq refers to her video work of the same name. Based on conversations with the African-American psychologist Dr. Lula M. Drewes, who lives in Berlin, the work deals with the hand as a model of the brain and tries to put neurobiological processes into a social context through this symbolisation.

Film Installation „This Makes Me Want to Predict the Past”
Austria 2019, 16 min, German version, Directed by: Cana Bilir-Meier
Shot on Super 8, Cana Bilir-Meier’s film portrays a group of migrant teenagers at the Olympia Shopping Center in Munich, where nine young people were killed in a racist attack in 2016. Beside their daily explorations, the teenagers restage scenes from the theater play Düşler Ülkesi (Land of Dreams) by Erman Okay. The premiere of the play in 1982 was overshadowed by a bomb threat. The contradiction in the film title of wanting to predict the past is a reference to the continuous experience of racism, but can also be read as a playful suggestion to break out of habitual patterns of thought and behavior—conveyed in the film through YouTube comments on Childish Gambino’s song Redbone.

Exhibition We Will Not Forget -The Portraits of the NSU Victims.
The photos of the NSU murder victims from family albums were first found in police files and racist news. Only through hard struggles of the relatives and their allies do victims of racism get proper attention. Because victims of racism take the writing of history into their own hands. The history of the many.
The portraits were created by artist Veronika Dimke on behalf of the initiative Keupstraße is everywhere and many donors make it possible to give them to the relatives of the murdered at the end of the exhibition.
