Things to remember

hatun_s%C3%BCr%C3%BCc%C3%BC.jpg Tomorrow is the 2nd anniversary of the death of Hatun Sürücü – who was murdered by her own brother (a so called honor killing) about 2 years ago. Hatun chose a life according to Western standards over the Muslim headscarf and even divorced from a forced marriage at the age of 15.

The authorities believed that her three brothers and her father were directly involved in the plot to murder her, but only her youngest brother was found guilty.

To honor her, the district major of Tempelhof, Ekkehard Band, and the deputy of the BVV Ingrid Kühnemann, will lay a wreath tomorrow (Wednesday, 7th February 2007) at 10:00 AM at the crime scene on Oberlandgarten 1, corner of Oberlandstraße in Tempelhof.
