The relatives of the victims of the xenophobic terrorist attack in February in the German city of Hanau, in which nine people died, are receiving long-term support from the Hessian state government.
The interior minister of the state, Peter Beuth, has assured that “a support program for Hanau will be started very soon in order to offer the survivors and relatives of the victims of the attack the necessary care and support for years to come”.
The attack came when a 43-year-old man opened fire in a shisha bar in central Hanau and shortly afterwards moved to another shisha shop in a western neighborhood about two kilometers away, where he starred another Shoot. All of the deceased were of foreign origin.
Six months have passed since the massacre on Wednesday, so the Hanau authorities have called a demonstration in memory of the victims. On August 26th, Prime Minister Volker Bouffier is to meet with the families of the victims.
