With the People

nsuYesterday the German parliament session discussed the findings of the committee which investigated the crimes committed by NSU, a neo-Nazi cell who killed several foreigners living in Germany, and the shameful behavior of the security forces.

Apologies were directed to the families of the victims, who were present, and conclusions were reaffirmed that this scandal is not just a failure of the security services, but of the whole society.

A symbolic gesture of immense significance was made by Joachim Gauck, the President, entered parliament together with the families of the victims, and watched the discussion sitting between them in the stands.
