September 1980 Munich. An assassin sets off a bomb at the entrance to the Oktoberfest. 13 people are killed, 211 injured, some of them seriously. The assassin is a sympathizer with right-wing extremist groups. The police investigations are based on a single perpetrator. However, there are inconsistencies in the results of investigations. In 2010, the federal prosecutor opens the investigations once again. The website offers facts and figures about the search for clues. All records, research, interviews and films are accessible in multimedia form.
