Executions in 2018: min. 690 plus 'thousands' in China


The German Coaltion to Abolish the Death Penalty offers miscellaneous services:

  • People who have pen friends on death row and want to support them with small amounts of money can order money orders and stamps at cost price.
  • Our member Gabi Uhl has recorded several protest songs against the death penalty which can be ordered via this website. For example one of these songs is a musical version of the “Ballade vom Nachahmungstrieb“ (Ballad of Imitative Instinct) by the well-known German writer Erich Kästner. This song is already in great demand for use in school lessons.
  • Especially for schools: offer for members to pay a visit during lessons and talk about the death penalty. We also offer a documentary which is suitable for use in schools.
  • Anyone wanting to express their rejection of the death penalty in public can order T-shirts and other articles in our shop.
