Ibrahim Arslan


Ibrahim Arslan encourages other victims to speak. In 1992, at the age of seven, he survived the racist arson attack in Mölln, wrapped in wet blankets. He spent four hours in the burning kitchen before he was rescued – for his sister, cousin and grandmother any help came too late. Today, Ibrahim appears loudly in public. In talks with contemporary witnesses, he talks about his experiences in schools. At the NSU Tribunal he holds a workshop by and for those affected by racism: the reactions and participation are overwhelming. For Ibrahim this is a clear sign of the urgency of his work.
