It is shortly before 2:30 in the afternoon, on this warm summer Wednesday, when the Israeli professor Yitzhak Melamed walks across the courtyard garden, a meadow larger than a soccer field, in the 18th district. Built in the nineteenth century, directly in front of the electoral residence palace in Bonn. The magnificent building is now the university. In the evening, the professor is to give a lecture here on German philosophy. He is a guest at the university's summer school, and a member of the institute's staff accompanies him through the park. Professor Melamed, 50, otherwise teaches in the U.S. He is Jewish and wears a kippah on this day.

Around 14.8 p.m., on 11. June, a young man approaches Yitzhak Melamed and his colleague. He sees the kippa, religious Jews wear the small, circular head covering as a symbol of their fear of God. The unknown man quickly becomes aggressive, apparently he has taken drugs, pushes the professor, hits him with his hand the kippa from his head. Melamed picks it up from the ground, puts it back on his head. Again the man hits the kippa. Then he hits Melamed on the shoulder and shouts: "No Jew in Germany"!"

Blows to the kippah, blows from the police

The professor defends himself against the attack, the two wrestle. The colleague alerts the police by cell phone. This is how it will later be written in the officers' memo. The witness confirms the incident and the course of events to this editorial office. Another university employee, as well as police, provide details of the crime when asked.

The judgement to the npd is an embarrassment for the policy

At least Malu Dreyer is still convinced of herself. The ban procedure against the NPD was "consistent," said the president of the Bundesrat, and the path to Karlsruhe was right.

This is the sound of retreat. Because the way to Karlsruhe led to the next defeat. The court was not convinced – not one of the seven judges. For the second time, the constitutional judges failed to ban the NPD. This is an embarrassment.

Verdict is a slap in the face

In the courtroom after the verdict was announced, NPD leaders posed in front of the cameras, celebrating victory over the "system" they fight. The stage belonged yesterday to the wrong people. The Union, SPD and Greens fell into this political trap with the failed trial. The dangerous reverberations may also lead to a more self-confident and continued tax-funded appearance of the NPD especially in some East German communities.

Austria is to pay 1.5 million euros for hitler's house

The expropriated owner of Adolf Hitler's birthplace should from the Republic of Austria 1.5 million euros receive. This is what the Ried im Innkreis district court ruled.

In January 2017, Austria had the owner of the two-story home in Braunau am Inn, where the German dictator spent his first months of life, expropriated. In return, she had received 310.000 euros received. Included in the price were garages and numerous parking spaces.

This is how massively the neo-nazi network has changed

In the past Right-wing usually easy to spot: They wore jump boots and bomber jackets. They shaved their hair short and paraded in marketplaces with drums and flags. They organized themselves primarily in parties and comradeships. Some eventually switched bomber jackets for pinstriped suits and made careers in parliaments. Others went underground.

This is what has changed. Right-wing extremist structures are much stronger today fragmented, interwoven and conspiratorial. Ideologically, the right-wing scene is fanning out; technically, it can communicate via encrypted messenger services. Not just local, but global.

Within the radical right movement, "identitarians" are growing, who cleverly spread their racism with campaigns on the net. "Preppers" are forming, preparing for a political fight with the enemy on a "day X". "Reich citizens" reject the Federal Republic and form their own bastions. Neo-Nazis organize themselves into micro-groups, sometimes lone perpetrators strike without having previously radicalized themselves over several years in a party or comradeship.

How do the Schools through the first Corona Winter? Rising infection rates and travel during the fall vacations, closed windows and digital helplessness in many municipalities are driving sweat onto the brow of parents and teachers.
