Activists from the organization 'Terre des Femmes' gather at the memorial to Hatun Surucu on the 7th anniversary of her murder near the site where Surucu was killed on February 7, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. Surucu, a Berlin-born daughter of Kurdish immigrants, was shot in the head and killed by her youngest brother Ayhan Surucu in an honour killing in 2005. Hatun had been forced into marriage at the age of 16 and later fled back to Berlin, where she moved into her own apartment, pursued technical training and disbanded elements of her conservative, Kurdish upbringing. Two other brothers accused of the murder were aquitted and received with open arms by their siblings upon their release. Honour killings are a consistant phenomenon among conservative members of Germany's large Turkish and Kurdish communities, with an average of several dozen murders committed every year.
