Class flees from Brandenburg holiday camps after racist insults

Pupils, most of whom have a migration background, are said to have been racially insulted and threatened by guests at a birthday party, whereupon the teacher called the police. He also decided to break off his stay at the summer camp and take the class back to Berlin that night.

The officials accompanied the departure, questioned witnesses on site and took the personal details of possible suspects. The responsible criminal police state protection took over the further investigations.

"I don't want to and we mustn't put up with such attacks," said Berlin's Education Senator Katharina Günther-Wünsch (CDU) on Monday. The first thing to do is to give the students the best possible help. A crisis and intervention team from your Senate administration was notified immediately.

The police must clarify the incident and the young people involved must be held accountable, demanded the East German commissioner, Carsten Schneider (SPD). "Creating a climate of openness is the common task of all of us," he told the editorial network Germany. It also depends on the support of parents and families.

The parliamentary manager of the SPD faction in the Brandenburg state parliament, Ludwig Scheetz, called the incidents "unacceptable". These showed "that we currently have to focus much more on enlightenment and educational work with young people". "We can no longer play down right-wing extremist activities," he continued.

The Brandenburg CDU parliamentary group leader Jan Redmann spoke of an "accumulation of these incidents", which he observes "with concern". "We have to do everything we can to ensure that we don't fall back into the 1990s in Brandenburg - right-wing extremism must not become the dominant youth culture in Brandenburg again," Redmann warned.

The management of the holiday camp also commented on the incident. Accordingly, the school class wanted to hold a math camp in the accommodation from Friday to Monday. The other group stayed there for an 18th birthday party, for which 20 overnight guests and a further 60 day guests were registered. A mother from a neighboring town had booked.

According to the management, the facility's on-call service brought the remaining seven teachers and students to Königs Wusterhausen train station on Sunday morning, the others had already been picked up by their parents.

The facility supports the investigation into the incidents "fully," it said. "We are in contact with the school concerned and very much regret that they left our facility under these circumstances".

"We strongly condemn any form of xenophobia and racism," the management said. The booker of the 18th birthday group was therefore banned from the house.
