The attack at a Berlin Christmas market has fuelled the anti-refugee rhetoric in Germany.
One year after the Berlin Christmas market attack, German politicians have said more must be done to offer assistance to victims following a terrorist incident. What should that support look like?
Chancellor Merkel had been slammed by survivors and relatives for not reaching out to them nearly a year after the attack. The mother of the attacker has meanwhile told DW she would gladly meet with victims' mothers.
Shortly before the anniversary of the 2016 Berlin terror attack, Chancellor Angela Merkel has paid a surprise visit to Breitscheidtplatz's Christmas market. Survivors recently criticized Merkel's handling of the attack.
To mark the first anniversary of the December 19 event, the Christmas market at the Breitscheidplatz will be closed the whole day. The market will reopen on Wednesday.
