Trier (dpa / lrs) - Almost two weeks after the rampage in Trier with five dead and many injured, the city still has no date for a planned memorial service in mind.

“It's just too early.

This is also what experts with whom we are in communication tell us, ”said a spokesman for the city of Trier on Monday.

The perspective of those affected is decisive.

Injured people continued to fight for their lives in hospitals, he said.

Basically, however, a larger memorial service is planned.

On December 1, a 51-year-old driver on a rampage raced through the Trier pedestrian zone in his sports vehicle, killing five people and injuring at least 24 other people, six of them seriously.

The city announced that looking after the victims was "the primary interest" for Trier and the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.

It is about "looking after the relatives of the deceased, the seriously injured and seriously injured as well as their families and also about the many people who saw the terrible act and suffer from these memories".


Mayor Wolfram Leibe (SPD) and the Victims Commissioner of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate, Detlef Placzek, will be providing information on previous measures and "the ongoing establishment of a network for victim protection" in Trier this Tuesday (2 pm).

The sympathy is still great: a donation account for victims and relatives has already received more than 642,000 euros from a good 7800 donors.

The mourning in Trier continues.

The candles are still burning at many memorial sites.
