    The “central migration museum” is to make the “German remembrance culture more diverse,” said the supporting association “Documentation Center and Museum on Migration in Germany” (Domid) on Friday.

    It has recognized the “relevance of a diverse culture of discussion and remembrance in the migration society,” said Domid CEO Robert Fuchs. Rolf Mützenich, the leader of the SPD parliamentary group, said: “I campaigned for the ‘House of the Immigration Society’ to enable a place of remembrance culture and lively exchange on migration issues in Germany.”

    A leaked report revealed in 2016 that a staggering 1 200 women were sexually abused by 2 000 migrant men mainly in Cologne and Hamburg, where 600 and 400 sexual assaults were reported respectively in one single evening. And of the 2 000 perpetrators, only 120 were identified, according to German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

    But according to authorities, migration is one of the “urgent questions of our time” and Cologne has a “cosmopolitan cultural landscape” and is therefore an “excellent location,” added Mützenich seemingly unaware of the irony. The state of North Rhine-Westphalia has also promised financial help.

    Domid is an association founded in 1990 by four Turkish immigrants, whose goal, according to its own statement, is a ” diverse, anti-racist society with equal rights for all”.

    “We demand and promote a transnational, multi-perspective narrative that understands plurality as a constituent element of the narrative,” it says on its website. In German cities, every second child will be born with a migration background. Migration thus represents the “normal case”, but is “not yet anchored in society”. With the museum Germany could be “discovered as an immigration country” and recognize migration as a “creative force”.

    Another concern was the “dissolution of Germany’s homogeneous history narrative” in favor of “networking and empowerment” in order to “strengthen solidarity in society”. According to the regional daily, the Kölner Stadtanzeiger, the Cologne-Kalk district on the right bank of the Rhine was the ideal place of construction, “because the district reflects the diversity of the migration society”.

    Meanwhile, the Lord Mayor of the German city of Ulm, Gunter Czisch, a Merkel sychophant, who had announced Ulm to be a “safe haven for refugees” at the “Opportunities for Diversity” meeting, has blamed a German teenage for getting gang-raped recently.

    Ulm’s Lord Mayor Gunter Czisch (CDU) was initially shocked: “I am just as shocked as others when I read this,” he told the Südwest Presse. Then Czisch continued:

    “But I wonder what a 14-year-old girl wants in Ulm at night. Parents have a duty to ensure that a minor girl does not walk around town alone. I say this so clearly, because we all have to take the duty to prevent such cases.”

    But since his comments, the Lord Mayor has been forced to publish a second statement in which he apologized for the first statement after an outcry on social media.

    “I am very sorry that my original statement was misleading. Of course, the girl was not at fault. The blame for this act lies exclusively and clearly with the suspected perpetrators,” he admitted.
