Since 2010 the St. Pauli Fanladen (the social fan project) and the fans organize different events around the international Holocaust Memorial Day on January 27th to commemorate the victims of the National Socialism. The focal point of these events is always around the plaque in front of the south stand of the St. Pauli stadium.
It was installed there in 2004 at the initiative of the fans to remember the victims of the national socialist persecution. Even though the focus of these events lies on remembering and commemorating, more recent events of the present are also discussed to do justice to the theme “Remembering for the Future”, putting it into context.
The events are always well visited – not only by fans and other citizens, but by parts of the coaches and players of the first team. Everyone should see what our club stands for: for a colourful diversity, for tolerance and respect.
“Kein Fußball den Faschisten” – ‘No football for fascists!’
This year is no exception, on Saturday, January 27th, a wreath-laying ceremony is taking place in front of the stadium next to the plaque. On Sunday, January 28th, the first home match of FC St. Pauli against Darmstadt, fans of both teams will show their respects and organize a fan choreography in remembrance of the victims of National Socialism at the stadium.
