A group of German activists have carried out a study which found that rates of sexual offenses increase significantly in the vicinity of asylum reception centers, Germany’s Journalistenwatch news portal reported.

A group of German activists called XY Einzelfall have has used Google Maps to establish a link between the presence of asylum seekers and sexual violence, Germany’s Journalistenwatch news portal reported.

The analysts used reports from local media, mainstream media and the police to compile a map of crimes across Germany, including sexual assault, attempted rape, robbery and criminal assault. The map shows the town in which the attack happened but it doesn’t mark the exact spot.

These crimes were then compared with another map showing the location of Germany’s asylum reception centers.

Comparison of the two maps appears to reveal correlation between the presence of an asylum reception center and the proportion of sex offences in the vicinity of the center.


Map of reported crimes in Germany in 2016. [Crimes: 1. countable A specific act committed in violation of the law. 2 uncountable: The practice or habit of committing crimes. 3. uncountable criminal acts collectively. View a detailed live map on google maps here.]

Within a two kilometer radius of an asylum reception center, there was an average of 476 reported sex crimes, or 21.82 percent of all the crimes reported. Within a ten kilometer radius there were 11,154 reported sex crimes, or 15.80 percent of all the crimes reported.

The data appears to show that the proportion of sex offenses declines further away from asylum reception centers. Within a radius of ten to 15 kilometers from asylum centers the proportion of sex crime falls to 8.53 percent. Between 40 and 50 kilometers away from asylum reception centers, the proportion of sex offenses falls to 1.19 percent.

The group of activists who made the map call themselves XY-Einzelfall because Einzelfall, which means ‘isolated case’ in German, is a term often used by the German police and media to underplay the extent of migrant crime.

“We decided to make the map because the German press is staying silent, they are only reporting selectively, not the whole disaster,” XY-Einzelfall told Sputnik.

“The only Police-related person who addresses the issue in the press without whitewashing it is Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union.”

XY-Einzelfall aim to inform Germans about the dangers of Angela Merkel’s policies.

“We aren’t trying to prove a theory or explore data. We want to inform people, show them how Germany is being changed by Merkel, show them that woman are in danger everywhere in Germany, not only in Cologne. But not only women, also the elderly and children,” they said.

“We aren’t trying to tell anybody what to do. We just want people to be alert to the huge danger around them. The biggest news show in Germany didn’t even mention the (recent) homicide in Freiburg and that the perpetrator who raped and killed the girl is a refugee.”

According to Germany’s Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), almost 900,000 refugees and migrants arrived in Germany in 2015, and this year almost 300,000 are expected to arrive.

The influx has led to concern about increased crime rates, which has boosted support for the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany.

According to German police statistics, in 2015 there were 6.33 million recorded crimes in Germany, a 4.1 percent increase compared to 2014.

In Germany in 2015 there were 46,081 reported sex crimes, or 0.8 of the total offenses recorded.

The police statistics show a staggering 158.3 percent increase in the number of non-Germans suspected of committing crime, including asylum seekers, compared to the previous year.

In 2014 non-Germans were suspects in 179,563 crimes, or 8.4 percent of all recorded crimes. In 2015 non-Germans were suspects in 463,889 crimes, or 26 percent of all crimes.

  1. ‘The police statistics show a staggering 158.3 percent increase in the number of non-Germans suspected of committing crime, including asylum seekers, compared to the previous year.’

    How to put this politely, ok perhaps there is no way to be polite about it. A true story. There was a video on YT about non Islamic women performing in a club atmosphere, who were seriously assaulted by Muslim men in the crowd, calling them ‘whores’ and the like, a few rushing the stage and starting to pummel the women. I made a snide comment that it seems Muslim men get a real kick out of beating up women. There were many comments after mine, mainly agreeing with my sentiment, with of course, the occasional Muslim man chiming in.

    One Muslim man said, in all seriousness, that women are ‘the devil’. I asked him, what about your own mother, your own sister, is that how your feel about them? At first he said ‘them too’, then apparently after a little reflection said something about how well Muslim men treat their women, evidently realizing that calling all women ‘the devil’ did not go over too well.

    It is hard to believe in the 21st century that some Muslim men actually believe women are the devil, incarnate, but they do. When they come to Europe, handing them a pamphlet, or giving them a class, telling them no-nos and what not to do to European women are likely viewed by the Muslim men as some kind of joke, as their religion makes women property, a good beating now and then is a husband’s prerogative, and and a man’s word is always above what a woman says or what she wants. And European women who dress in a sexy way are ‘asking for it’ and ‘deserve it’ from the prowling Muslim ‘asylum seekers’.

    Again, Islam is shown to be a symbol of a corrupt patriarchal ‘religion’ with little regard to women. It is no wonder that non-Islamic women in Europe are afraid to be anywhere near them.


      • @ Ericka. In line with what you are saying
        ‘ Germany is seeing a rise in Islamophobia, according to a new study which highlights the tensions surrounding the recent influx of refugees. More than 40 percent of residents said they believe Muslims should be forbidden from coming to Germany.

        The study – conducted by researchers at the University of Leipzig in co-operation with the Heinrich Boell Foundation, the Rosa-Luxemburg Foundation, and the Otto-Brenner foundation – surveyed a total of 2,420 Germans.

        The 40 percent who said Muslims should be banned from coming to Germany is significantly higher from 2009, when just one-fifth expressed the same sentiment.

        In addition, every second respondent said they sometimes feel like a foreigner in their own country, due to large number of Muslims living in Germany, according to Reuters report. That number is compared to 43 percent in 2014 and 30.2 percent in 2009.’

        My only quibble with this article is the prevalent and inaccurate use of the word ‘Islamophobia’, as a phobia indicates an irrational fear of something. There is nothing irrational about fearing that terrorists have embedded themselves into the ‘refugees’ coming in, as this has been shown to be the case; and it is rational to be deeply concerned about the inability (or willingness) of Muslims to assimilate.


      • I agree with your point Islamaphobia, and I am aware this is not necessarily correct. So far as I know the word was dreamed up by disenchanted Muslims themselves. It is now probably in the New and latest Oxford Dictionary. Will follow up link and share.


  2. And yet Merkel was given a standing ovation by her own party recently. It is all very well to worry about unfortunate people suffering in Syria, for sure we all sympathize. These are not the people that are entering Germany or Europe. Merkel after being asked to step down proceeded to shake the hands of three Moslem men who could well have have participated in rape carnage. The woman simply cannot differentiate between genuine refugee and Jihadists.


  3. Hi, does anyone have the sources for the increase in crime from the refugees? I can’t seem to find any governmental documentation on it for this article or others. I would greatly appreciate it!
