Study: Foreign Background Children Responsible for Rise in German Youth Violence

Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, April 4, 2018


Schools in Germany, especially in the capital of Berlin, have seen a recent surge in violence among young students including targetted anti-Semitic attacks. Heinz-Peter Meidinger, President of the German Teachers’ Association, has blamed mass migration for the rise in violence and anti-Semitism, Neue Zürcher Zeitung reports.


Teachers in schools have also complained about religious bullying, particularly from Muslim students, against students from other backgrounds.

Teachers at the community school Bruchwiese in Saarbrücken wrote the Ministry of Education a letter last year complaining of the rise in violence, saying that students threatened teachers and each other with knives and pepper spray in the classroom. The school is also notable for having a student population in which 86 per cent of students come from migrant backgrounds.


Political scientist Stefan Luft claimed the anti-Semitic attitudes of the young children had been “imported” from their home countries. “The increased violent crime in recent years is largely due to refugee migrants,” he said.


Some schools, like Schoeneberg Spreewald Elementary School in Berlin, has had to hire security guards to protect staff and students from violence. The school also has a 99 per cent migrant background student population.
