In large parts of the public opinion in Halle (Saale), the anti-Semitic, racist, and misogynist attack of Oct. 9th, 2019, which cost two people their lives and left 62 people pleading for attempted murder, is understood as a terrible act of a mentally disturbed, socially isolated lone perpetrator. 

Investigating authorities, media coverage and the reasoning of Oberlandesgericht’s evaluation of the case co- and reproduce the narrative of the isolated case and “Einzeltätermythos”. Co-plaintiffs and activists in the field criticise the lacking contextualization of the attack as one link in a chain of violent anti-Semitic, racist and anti-feminist attacks and assaults in Germany and worldwide.
