After a right-wing extremist party appeared in front of the school in Burg, the spa town in the Spreewald banned actions by parties and groups in the vicinity of the facility. The Burg Office issued a general decree to prevent further “disruptions to the school peace”. This was announced by office director Tobias Hentschel in a statement on Friday.

On Wednesday, supporters of the right-wing extremist micro-party The Third Way distributed flyers in front of the school in Burg. They got evictions. A letter from teachers describing right-wing extremist incidents at the school caused a nationwide sensation.

According to the general decree, parties, groups and associations are not allowed to distribute any advertising, hang up posters or set up any information stands in the vicinity of the school and daycare centers until May 19th. “The current situation puts a heavy strain on daily school life. The fact that parties, clubs and other groups use media attention for their own purposes disrupts daily school life beyond the already tense level, especially since this creates further media attention,” the statement said . Proper school operations are not guaranteed under these restrictions.

Office director Hentschel also made it clear in a statement that he was concerned about the reputation of the spa. He called for prudence and warned against “general allegations”. The statement also says: “In recent years, the Burger School has always accepted students who do not come from their own area. From students with a migration background to children from problematic homes, everyone deserves a chance, without regard of the person to graduate from high school without prejudice and discrimination.”
