Important information for refugees in Germany’

This new leaflet issued by the German domestic intelligence service BfV (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz) is addressed to people seeking refuge in Germany. It aims at raising the refugees’ awareness of extremist-terrorist and secret service activities and groups of individuals relevant in this context. Threats, for instance, are posed by Islamists and terrorists trying to win refugees over to their ideologies, or by foreign secret service agents trying to spy on oppositionists and opponents of the regime living in German exile.


The leaflet illustrates the reasons why extremist views contravene the fundamental principles of the German Constitution and shows how to identify extremists and foreign secret service officers. This publication is also available in German and French.
