I'm trying to find reliable data on attacks on refugee homes in Germany/Poland in recent years. I know that there were several projects initiated to collect such data, however so far I can't find the output anywhere. All suggestions are welcome.

There's a badly maintained (not consistently formatted) table on Wikipedia: Liste von Angriffen auf Flüchtlinge und Flüchtlingsunterkünfte in Deutschland 2015

There's a project bei ZEIT which collected cases, but afaik never published the data: Es brennt in Deutschland

Are there any other official/community-driven data bases?

I don't want state-level aggregates

For Germany, you may be interested in this paper, which comes with downloadable data. The data describe individual crimes against refugees (no aggregates) in 2014 and 2015. Latitude and longitude of the crime scene are included.

    This is great, do you know whether the authors intend on continuing this?

    Yes, as far as I know, one of the authors (David) is currently working on another paper based on this data, using some more advanced modelling. Commented Aug 9, 2016 at 10:56
  • The data used for the paper is just the scraped data from the project that @sheß provides below. There is a public github repo with the data here: github.com/ax3l/chronik-vorfaelle Commented Dec 12, 2016 at 14:27

The website https://www.mut-gegen-rechte-gewalt.de/service/chronik-vorfaelle collects incidents. Sources of reports are published as well. (I just realized that this is the source on which the paper and the dataset from the post by @MightyCurious are based)

The google-maps-based project Kaltland-Chronik https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1SuyMXRcmoMkz4-AfJaxaHYWIkI0 collects entries, but is apparently not available for 2015 and before and is not fully transparent on how the sources are collected.
