Fürstenfeldbruck (dpa / lby) - An unknown person has sent at least 200 letters with anti-Semitic hate speech across Bavaria. The criminal police are investigating - and are looking for other victims, said the police headquarters in Upper Bavaria North on Thursday.
The unknown perpetrator has been sending machine-generated letters with anti-Semitic slogans since November 2020. Among other things, the Holocaust is denied in the pamphlets. The recipients are apparently randomly selected people. In addition to local politicians, prosecutors, judges, employees of radio stations, but also organizations such as student fraternities or fraternities were written to. The anti-Semitic agitation is always the same: the author of the letters calls for the content to be passed on.
So far, the police are aware of a good 200 cases from all over Bavaria. "But we are assuming a much higher number of letters," said an investigator commissioned in this case from the Fürstenfeldbruck Criminal Police Inspectorate.
