In this article-based dissertation I ask how the victims and their relatives are being positioned in German societal debate on extremist terrorism. This research concentrates on Neo-Nazism (part of the extreme right) and on Islamic extremist terrorism. This research also aims to compare the differences that can be identified between the positions (representations, voices) of the victims/relatives of these two different kinds of terrorists. As a method I will use CDA, the critical discourse analysis.
