Background programme, hr

Munich, Higher Regional Court: 333rd day of proceedings in the NSU trial. It is the most important and, above all, the longest process involving right-wing terror, which there has ever been in Germany. It offers an insight into the depths of the right-wing scene, as well as the failure of the protectors of the constitution. Since May 2013 hundreds of witnesses have been heard, countless legal skirmishes and a hearing of evidence which already should have been finished. However, it is only the tip of right-wing violence that is revealed by this process.
