Category Information

Selected was: Extradited! Temporary workers at Amazon (HR/ARD)

Low wages, cramped accommodation and right-wing security forces. Every year during the high season, the online retailer Amazon Deutschland recruits thousands of migrant workers from abroad. What really awaits the workers is a nasty surprise: Amazon does not present them with a contract, but rather a tem- porary employment agency. Significantly less pay than promised in the recruit- ment, long rides in crowded buses and cramped accommodation in a leisure park and a security service that intimidates and penetrates into the private sphere of the workers. Anyone who objects is thrown out. Investigative report on tempora- ry agency work – a journalistic achievement, technically outstanding.

Category Long programmes

Selected was: Scrubbing against right-wing extremism. The relentless struggle of a pensioner against Nazi slogans (SWR)

Irmela Mensah-Schramm practically only leaves her apartment complete with brush, spray and nail polish remover. The 67-year-old uses them to cover neo-Nazi slogans, scrape away alien-hostile graffiti and tear down anti-semitic stickers. She refuses to be intimidated on her cleaning-up tours throughout Germany. Neither by death threats, nor by criminal charges for damage when she paints over extensive swastikas on house facades. Differentiated radiophonic presentation of the threatening development of right-wing extremism – impressive, humorous, full of atmosphere.

Selected was: Echo der Zeit: Peaceful coexistence between Roma and Czechs (SRF)

The village of Obrnice with its 2,500 inhabitants in the Czech Republic has won the Prize of the Council of Europe in 2013 for exemplary integration of Roma. Previously Obrnice was marked by its dilapidated roads and high unemployment, Roma and white Czechs did not want to have anything to do with each other. The newly arrived Lady Mayoress tackled the problem: she appointed a Roma woman as a social worker, introduced community service, built up a security service in which Roma and whites patrolled together and fought against the formation of ghettos – successfully. An outstanding radiophonic report – precise, unbiased, highly professional.
