The fraternity in question — Normannia — has been under German police investigation following an outrage at a party held by its Heidelberg University members at their mansion on Aug. 29, 2020.

A 25-year-old student in attendance who spoke about his Jewish ancestry was berated with antisemitic abuse, whipped with belts and pelted with metal coins by several assailants.

News of the latest delay coincided with the Spiegel exposé of the antisemitism and glorification of Germany’s Nazi past that prevailed at the Normannia fraternity.

Stockmann stressed that the attack on the Jewish student at the fraternity party could not be regarded as an isolated incident.

Stockmann said that most members of the fraternity “feel they are part of an elite where lifelong loyalty is considered a virtue.”.

“In university towns like Heidelberg, they live in fancy villas for little rent,” he noted.

Nine men and one woman are currently being investigated for their roles in the attack at the fraternity party. »
