3 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

A 43-year-old gunman walked into two bars in Hanau, Germany, this week and killed nine people, all of whom were immigrants.
Before carrying out the massacre, he called for the "annihilation" of the country's minorities.
The domestic-terror attack is the latest in a trend of far-right violence against refugees, migrants, Jews, Muslims, and people of color.
The ascent of the far-right in German government has led to rising concerns that the country is losing its collective memory of the lessons imparted by World War II and the Holocaust.
