Candlelight Vigil against Xenophobia (February 1, 1993)
The arson attack in Mölln, which claimed three lives, provided the German public with drastic proof that xenophobic violence was by no means strictly an East German problem. Therefore, in the weeks following the attack, thousands of people in West Germany took part in demonstrations against racism and xenophobia. This photo shows a candlelight vigil in Düsseldorf. Several thousand participants carried lit candles in a chain-like procession.
