Installation in memory of Semra Ertan

    Semra Ertan (b. Mersin, Turkey, 1956 – d. 1982, Hamburg, Germany) was a Turkish migrant worker and writer in Germany who, in protest against racism, specifically the treatment of Turks in Germany, set herself on fire in a Hamburg marketplace. Initiative calls for the street to be renamed. Status of the 2020 initiative remains unclear.
