Victim Myth Events, what is worth being disturbed (at least):

At 10 a.m., wreaths will be placed in the Heidefriedhof at the Rondell* in memory of the air raid and the association “Denk mal Fort” wants to read out the names of around 4,000 identified victims of the bombing. This drastically continues and reinforces the victim myth. Dresden was a nationalsocialist city from which deportations were carried out, in which Jewish and other people were exploited as forced laborers and murdered, and a city that was strategically relevant to the military and for the armaments industry – and whose residents were mostly fascist perpetrators who have supported and organized the Nazi regime in different ways and found antisemitism and racism to be completely justified. Today people still pretend that the air raid on Dresden made them the real victims of the war – even though they were perpetrators. We will not accept this falsification of history. The LinksJugend (left-wing youth) has called for a counter-manifestation at the rondel in the Heidefriedhof starting at 9:30 a.m. We support this call!

* The Rondell itself is an unprecedented place for the falsification of history and the perpetrator-victim reversal. It consists of 14 sandstone columns, one of which stands for Dresden alongside the columns for the death camps Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, Buchenwald, Dachau, Ravensbrück, Sachsenhausen and Theresienstadt and the sites of the annihilation war and crimes committed by the German Wehrmacht Coventry, Leningrad, Rotterdam, Warsaw , Lidice and Oradour – and it is pretended that the air raid on Dresden can be equated with all this cruelty and brutality.

What is also worth disturbing:

The city of Dresden calls for a human chain. They want to present themselves as victims of bombing and Nazis and be a symbol of peace and reconciliation – while they themselves do little against racism, sexism and fascism, instead criminalize anti-fascism and in some cases themselves consist of right-wing structures. The human chain is said to unite between 6 and 6:10 p.m.

The AfD has registered an “information stand” at Altmarkt from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to spread its fascist propaganda.

From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. there is a manifestation registered and organized by HOPE at Altmarkt as a counter-protest to the fascist commemoration of the AfD and other Nazis.
AfD & Co. want to be on the Altmarkt starting at 9:30 p.m. and lay wreaths.
