‘They say it would be nice if the refugees raped you’: Manager at German migrant centre describes terrifying battery acid and firework attacks by ‘Nazi sympathisers’

Graffiti branding Karen Larisch a ‘traitor’ has appeared in the northwest German town of Gustrow. Her home and the refugee drop-in centre have both been targeted. Larisch branded those targeting her ‘Nazis’ and said she feels ‘so afraid’. At the weekend anti-immigration party the Alternative for Germany Party defeated Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats in a state election. ‘Nazi sympathisers’ targeted a terrified manager at a refugee drop-in centre by pouring battery acid into her apartment block, and posting a firework into her workplace in northwest Germany. Karen Larisch, who managers the centre in the rural town of Gustrow, has been branded a ‘traitor’ in sinister graffiti, and has been abused online and on the phone because of her work. She says neo-Nazis in the town, which is in the former East Germany, have left her ‘so afraid’. And she stated: ‘There are guys they hate me and every time they see me in this town they are not nice to me, so I’m afraid.’ As Larisch spoke to the camera, two men she described as Nazi sympathisers appeared, and she called police.The men soon cycled off, describing her as a ‘hysterical woman’ and saying they were in a ‘free town’.
