August 1992. Lichtenhagen Estate, Rostock, in former East Germany. Police withdraw as fascists bomb a refugee centre and home of Vietnamese guest workers while 3,000 onlookers stand and cheer. Using material filmed from inside the attacked houses and interviews with anti-fascists, the Vietnamese guest workers, police, bureaucrats, Neo-nazis and residents, a story of political collusion and fear unfolds.
"Astounding in the way it lifts the lid on German authorities collusion in the events... it is both an historical record and a revelation of the cynicism that politicians call pragmatism."
Time Out, 21-28 July 1993
"A painstaking documentary... raising a number of questions that may never be answered."
The Guardian, 23 July 1993
"Impressive documentary whose implicit message is that right wing extremism is not just a matter of young Skinheads throwing Molotov cocktails but raises deeper questions about the attitude of government and police."
The Times, 22 July 1993
