    Al Jazeera English

    by Al Jazeera English

    In May 2013, the world's eyes were focused on Munich, in southern Germany. The extraordinary case about to start was a criminal prosecution at the Higher Regional Court: five defendants, 77 interveners, 600 witnesses, more than 50 lawyers, 488 pages of criminal charge, and 280,000 pages of interrogations records. This case has become a milestone for Germany's history and caused many social and political tensions. This trial, defined as one of Germany's highest-profile trials since World War II, was investigating the murders of eight Turks, one Greek and one German policewoman, two bomb attacks and 15 bank robberies, all executed between 2000 and 2007. This film looks at Germany's failure to track down the killers of nine immigrants and its effect on the relationship with the Turkish community.
