Anti-Neo-Nazi hotline created in GermanyMay 20th, 2008 - 2:39 pm ICT by admin
London, May 20 (ANI): Germany has created a neo-Nazi hotline and website for parents who are worried about their children getting attracted to far-right extremists.
According to a report in The Telegraph, the website which goes by the name Counselling Against Far-Right Extremism will provide counselling to youths who would like to get out of the neo-Nazi milieu or leave far-Right groups known as “comradeships”.
The project, which is also aimed at friends and relatives of neo-Nazis, is part of a campaign to curb a rising wave of neo-Nazism in Germany and an increase in hate and race crime.
The portal and the hotline are offering counselling to parents and teachers on what to do if they notice that their children are wearing bomber-jackets, draw swastikas on the walls, shave their head or give the Hitler salute.
In the first three months of this year, 1,311 crimes were committed by neo-Nazis, with 191 people were seriously injured. In the same period last year, 853 comparable crimes were committed, with 160 people injured.
Politicians however warn that the real numbers could be considerably higher, as many violent offences committed by neo-Nazis are not being registered as such by the police. (ANI)
