Keeping our sister Rita`s memory burning

It is two years now since our sister Rita disappeared and her charred body was found 200 metres from the Lager away where she lived for 7 years.

Rita, we will remember and fight for your dignity as a friend, refugee sister and woman. Remembering you is easy. We do it every day, as we continue to live in Hohenleipisch lager. The trauma of your death lives in us.

It’s the heartache of losing you, that will never go away, as we continue to remember the circumstances of your disappearance.

Some of us know what you went through as you struggled to find a way for a dignified future for you and your children.

They say that time heals, but neither time or reason will change the way we feel, as long as the perpetrator(s) of your death are free.

Some may forget you, now that you are gone, but we as your friends, we will remember and treasure the memories of you.

We, from Women in Exile and Friends, too, will keep you in memory and fight to see justice brought to the criminal or criminals of this heinous act. Every woman* in this society needs to be protected from femicide

regardless of their residential status.

We thought of you today, as we made a three-minute silence in front of the lager in Hohenleipisch. But that is nothing new, as we keep your memories alive as we fight for “No lagers for women and children”! We keep your memory alive, when we demand prevention of sexual violence against refugee women. We thought of you yesterday, as we sat together to plan ways of how to have our rally registered despite of corona lock downs. And will think of you tomorrow too, because we will not accept that refugee women charred remains will turn into cold cases. We will keep on looking for truth and justice as we fight against femicide.
