German Tamils held an exhibition in Berlin to mark the 35th anniversary of the Black July pogrom and to call for justice for genocide.
The exhibition was held in central Berlin in front of the famous Brandenburg gate.
Participants interacted with members of the public, who learnt more about the Black July pogrom and genocide on the island. Over 3000 Tamils were massacred during the pogrom which saw Sinhala mobs target Tamil homes and businesses, looting and ransacking property, as well as rounding up Tamils and burning them alive.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
