September 6, 2019: Does the trauma of sexual violence ever go away?


With the condemnation of the main perpetrators in the case of abuse Lügde the suffering of the victims does not end. How can I help? Also: the Amazon summit to save the rainforest

For years, Andreas V. and Mario S. had sexually abused children and adolescents on a campsite in Lügde, North Rhine-Westphalia. For the hundredfold abuse, the two main perpetrators have to go to prison for a long time, after which they should stay in custody - possibly for a lifetime. So long could the trauma of abused children and adolescents continue. The over 30 victims were all underage, the youngest, according to the prosecutors in the kindergarten age. How does a person at such a young age deal with such acts of violence, how can the processing of events be helped - and what must change in the prevention work? This explains Melanie Büttner, Specialist in Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy and Sex Therapist at the University Hospital on the right bank of the Isar in Munich.

The huge fires in the Amazon rainforest deal with world politics. After the climate problem was briefly put on the agenda at the G7 summit, representatives of the Amazon states are now meeting in Colombia. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is absent for health reasons. He is considered a friend of the agricultural lobby, which benefits from new open space for the cultivation of soya in the Amazon. Does he pull together with Evo Morales, Bolivia's leftist indigenous president? Can the participating countries agree on a solution - and how sustainable could it be? What European consumers can do to protect the rainforest, explains Thomas Fischermann, ZEIT correspondent in South America.
