Jürgen Martens (Minister of Justice) and Helma Orosz (Mayor of the city of Dresden) remembered the quinquennial of the murder of Marwa El-Sherbini; who was tragically killed by a White racist in 2009. Martens said that the terrible act should be a reminder to all of us to work against the presence of xenophobia. Aiman A. Mazyek, Chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, criticized the lack of awareness and sensibility in regard to issues of racism and xenophobia.
