Germany: The Other Story

Synopsis
Germany’s black and migrant communities speak out about the increasing racism in the ‘new’ unified Germany, about how the anti-immigrant policies of the state threaten them and about how they are organising to defend their communities. Examines two cases of racist murder - that of a Turkish youth, Ufuk Sahin, killed in Berlin, and of Antonio Amadeau, an Angolan worker beaten to death in the streets of Eberswalde, a town which witnessed the burning of refugee hostels. Looks behind headline news and tries to give a deeper understanding of the relationship between the settled immigrant communities and the white community. Also examines the case of a Turkish youth, Ayhan Ozturk, who killed an East German youth in self-defence. Features an interview with the German family who outline their frustration and explain how their son became involved in the Nationalist Party. Looks at how young immigrant groups are organising against the attacks.
