great documentary about the Martin Schleyer Kidnapping 1977
7 August 2002 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

I wasn't born yet when Martin Schleyer was kidnapped by RAF terrorists in 1977 and I didn't know much about terrorism in Germany's late 1970s. So on the one hand it was very interesting to learn about the "deutschen Herbst", the (bloody) second half of 1977 when the RAF declared German government the war. On the other hand it was a shocking and gripping documentary. I never thought a second about changing the channel and days after it I still thought about it. Especially decisions to risk lifes (this of Schleyer and these of the passengers in the kidnapped Boeing) to demonstrate strength of the own government are things, which I am happy I don't have to make.
