Call for February 13th, 2018

Peacefulness

A public call for February 13th, 2018

On February 13th, the day Dresden was bombed in 1945, we shall be remembering the victims of World War II and National Socialism, and the hatred and destruction that these brought.

Our democratic community is made of people with different backgrounds, beliefs and lifestyles, but they all share the desire to live together in peace, shaping and building our future. This goal will only be achieved if we approach each-other openly and with peace in mind. We condemn any use of violence or terror and call for reconciliation. We wish to reach out a hand to each-other in a democratic manner and build a human chain to demonstrate our unity.
The Mayor of the City of Dresden invites all citizens to participate in the human chain on February 13th, 2018, together with the members of the city council, representatives of business and science institutions, cultural and sports organisations, trade unions and churches, including the Jewish community, but also other actors in our civil society. Participate in the citizen movement and other commemorative events in our city to remember February 13th also this year.

  • 5 p.m., event opened at the Golden Gates of the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus), address by mayor Dirk Hilbert and the rector of TU Dresden, Prof. Müller-Steinhagen.
  • 6 p.m., human chain accompanied by the sound of the bells of the city’s churches.
