The attack in the quarter Kreuzberg on Thursday was aimed at participants of a real estate congress, reported Berlin daily, the Berliner Morgenpost.
The unsuspecting, innocent and suffering cancer patients from Berlin were on their way to an event in the district of Oberschöneweide. According to police, the bus was travelling with a group of about 50 people when it was suddenly bombarded with eggs, tomatoes and paint bombs.
Some of the real participants of the real estate congress in the city, also suffered violent attacks. A guest was beaten by the left-wing extremists and a the phone was taken from the hands of the victim.
Other participants of the event had to flee from the violent mob in the conference building and lock themselves away in safety. The rioters tried to kick down the front door several times. They managed to escape before the arrival of the police however.
In yet another attack, left-wing radicals devastated the apartment of Berlin’s former NPD politician Sebastian Schmidtke. On Wednesday, perpetrators had broken into his apartment in the district Johannisthal in Treptow-Köpenick.
Schmidtke served as Deputy Chairman of the NPD from 2010 to 2012 and Chairman of the Berlin National Association of the NPD from 4 March 2012 to 8 October 2016.
On the Internet platform Indymedia a letter of confession has emerged, confirmed the Berliner Morgenpost.
According to police, a witness had alerted the officials, because the door to the apartment of the ex-NPD chief was left open. Schmidtke was working at this time when the attackers destroyed the front door with fire extinguishers. His apartment was completely trashed.
The walls were smeared with brown bitumen, technical equipment was stolen or destroyed, and the toilet and sink were smashed. “I can not live here anymore,” Schmidtke told the Berliner Morgenpost.
The letter of confession on Indymedia speaks of an “anti-fascist visit” to his home. It was also discussed, it says, to give Schmidtke a “rubdown”, but they decided instead to destroy his “shelter”.
Schmidtke runs an online store for outdoor and survival items, many of which he stores in his home. Most of it was destroyed.
The letter of confession also contained a warning: “To the AfD, and the pack of nationalists, this can strike any one of you.”
It is the second attack on a place of residence of Schmidtke. In 2005, the door to his then apartment in Prenzlauer Berg was broken down. The perpetrators stopped the attack when they realized that Schmidtke was home.
