Welcome to VBRG, the Association of Counseling Centers for Victims of Right-wing, Racist and Anti-Semitic Violence in Germany
Every day, three to four racist or anti-Semitic acts of violence are committed in Germany. The victims’ counseling and support organizations united in the Association of Counseling Centers for Victims of Right-Wing, Racist and Anti-Semitic Violence (Verband der Beratungsstellen für Betroffene rechter, rassistischer und antisemitischer Gewalt,) ensure that those who have been attacked and injured are not left on their own. These organizations provide assistance and support victims of right-wing, racist and anti-Semitic violence, as well as witnesses and relatives. They do so free of charge, confidentially, on location and in a partisan (pro-victim) manner. Counseling services are also provided anonymously on request.
All too often, right-wing and racist violence and its consequences are ignored, downplayed or never made public. Together with our member organizations, we render the scope of right-wing violence visible by means of reliable monitoring, independently established figures and analyses. VBRG is committed to providing victims of right-wing violence in all of Germany’s federal states with access to counseling and support organizations that operate in a professional, independent, free-of-charge and partisan (pro-victim) manner.
