Illerkichberg News: Migration researcher has been to Eritrea several times

Update from December 7, 10:23 p.m

.: The migration researcher Dr.

Magnus Driver, who has already spent several research stays in the civil war country Eritrea - the country from which the alleged perpetrator from Illerkirchberg comes.

He says to

: "Growing up in wartime societies - for example in the Horn of Africa - is characterized by violence and suffering, sometimes people are perpetrators and victims at the same time.

Under no circumstances can one completely escape mediated or physical experiences of violence there - and these often continue on the way through the desert and across the Mediterranean after a successful desertion and escape."

In Germany, there is often a lack of specialists to treat people adequately.

"It is often left to friends, family members and diaspora churches to take care of newcomers who are in danger of collapsing under the weight." After the crime, the alleged perpetrator locked himself in a refugee shelter.

Criminal statistics: analysis after the murder of a 14-year-old in Illerkirchberg

Update from December 7, 8:55 p.m

.: After the knife attack in Illerkirchberg, in which a 14-year-old girl was fatally injured, a debate about crime by immigrants who are in Germany for reasons of flight has flared up.

The Federal Criminal Police Office publishes statistics that the

Süddeutsche Zeitung

analyzed after the murder in Illerkirchberg, which a 27-year-old man from Eritrea is accused of.

Among the 1.9 million refugees in Germany, very serious crimes are very rare - as in the rest of the population.

In detail, however, there are the following peculiarities:

  • Refugees make up 7.1 percent of all people suspected of committing a crime in Germany within a year - a high proportion because the entire group of refugees only makes up around 2.3 percent of the population

  • After peaking in 2015, the proportion is falling again.

  • Refugees are particularly conspicuous when it comes to serious crimes: 12.8 percent of suspects in murder or manslaughter, 13.1 percent of suspects in crimes such as rape - and thus six times as many as Germans, measured by proportion of the population.

  • Around 34 percent of the refugees are young men, while this group only accounts for 8 percent of Germans.

    However, young men are more likely to be criminals than other population groups.

    This factor skews the statistics.

  • Another factor that distorts the statistics: "Foreign-looking people" are reported more often than average - both people with German and other nationalities are more likely to report a crime if the perpetrator looks foreign.

According to SZ,

the criminologist Christian Walburg cannot confirm that young men who have fled pose a very great danger to the general population

: "As is often the case with serious acts of violence, this takes place in the immediate social area," he said, "between people who do things with each other have that live together.”

After the act of violence in Illerkirchberg: anti-racism expert wants objectivity despite understandable emotions

Update from December 7, 4:32 p.m .

: The anti-racism expert Anetta Kahane thinks that despite a heated debate on Twitter, some reason has come into the discussion and advocates objectivity, despite great emotions.

Since the act of violence in Illerkirchen became known, there had been speculation on social networks about the origin of the perpetrator, later the police and public prosecutor announced that the alleged murderer of the 14-year-old came from Eritrea and lived in accommodation for asylum seekers.

"Anyone who has children knows that this is the worst thing that can happen to you," says Anetta Kahane on



She is Chair of the Antonio Amadeu Foundation.

"If this man murdered this girl and attacked the other girl, then he needs to go to prison.

Then he gets to feel the full force of the law.

That's perfectly clear.

It has nothing to do with the color of the skin.” According to her observations, however, voices were heard that pleaded for reason.

She advocates taking a close look at murder statistics and not allowing the case to be used for political instrumentalization.

Nevertheless, it is understandable that people are afraid when they hear about cases such as the knife attack by a man who is believed to be from a refugee accommodation: "People who think so are also right, they have feelings for this act.

That's totally normal.

And it's also normal for such a generalization to come up." However, it is important to use reason: "Wait a minute, I can't, because I'm rightly angry with this man, generalize now and say that applies to everyone to those who come from Eritrea or to all asylum seekers.

I think that's the trick: to say I have to come down to a factual level - as bad as this act is."

Nach mutmaßlichem Mord in Illerkirchberg - erste politische Konsequenzen in Ulm

Update vom 6. Dezember, 13.00 Uhr: Nach Meldungen der Südwestpresse war es schon Ende November in der Region zu einem Abbruch einer Versammlung gekommen, die sich mit dem Thema der Unterbringung von Geflüchteten beschäftigte. Demnach hatten mehrere Menschen vor der Ortschaftsratsversammlung in Gögglingen-Donaustetten „für Unruhe“ gesorgt und geschimpft, weil sie wegen des zu großen Andrangs nicht mehr in einen Sitzungssaal kamen. Ortsvorsteherin Eva-Maria Emmenecker nannte die Vorgänge „erschreckend“.

Nach dem gewaltsamen Tod einer 14-Jährigen und der schweren Verletzung durch mutmaßlich einen Mann aus einer lokalen Geflüchtetenunterkunft, zieht die Stadt Ulm nun Konsequenzen. Die Ortschaftsratsversammlung in Gögglingen-Donaustetten sei abgesagt worden, bei zwei anderen Sitzungen wurden die entsprechenden Tagesordnungspunkte aufgeschoben, wie die Südwestpresse berichtet.

„Diese furchtbare Tat wühlt uns alle auf. Wir sind entsetzt über das Geschehen, das uns vollkommen unfassbar und sinnlos erscheint. Der Schock über diese brutale Tat sitzt tief. In dieser Lage ist es für alle Seiten unmöglich und auch nicht zumutbar, eine sachliche Diskussion zu führen“, so der Ulmer Oberbürgermeister Gunter Czisch (CDU). Zu diesem Zeitpunkt eine öffentliche Veranstaltung in einer Halle zu diesem Thema abzuhalten, „würde bedeuten, man nimmt eine Eskalation in Kauf, die den Mandatsträgern auch nicht zuzumuten ist.“, so Czsich.

Den Mitgliedern und Mitgliederinnen des Ortschaftsrats solle jedoch eine sachliche Debatte und Entscheidung möglich sein. Die Sitzung werde ja stattfinden: „Die Ziele bleiben.“ Dieser Schritte habe nichts damit zu tun, dass man sich wegducken möchte und sich kritischen Fragen seitens der Bürger nicht stelle. Weiterhin bittet der Ulmer Oberbürgermeister die Menschen darum, „jetzt innezuhalten“. Und er drückt den Opfern und der Familie namens der Stadt sein Mitgefühl aus: „Unsere Gedanken sind bei den Angehörigen der beiden Opfer, die damit fertig werden müssen, was ihren Kindern angetan wurde.“

In der Region gab es bereits 2019 ein Verbrechen in einer Asylunterkunft, die bundesweit für Schlagzeilen sorgte: In der Halloweennacht geschah in Illerkirchberg ein schweres Verbrechen an einer jungen Frau.
