Meine liebe Republik
As a child, Friedrich Zawrel got caught up in the perfidious system of the National Socialists and was humiliated and almost murdered by racial hygienists. He survived all of this. When Friedrich Zawrel seeks his fortune in the newly proclaimed Second Republic of Austria after the end of the National Socialist dictatorship, however, the evil ghosts of his past stand tall before him: in the form of the former Nazi doctor Heinrich Gross. In 1975, the two sit across from each other in a prison cell: Gross as a successful forensic expert, Friedrich Zawrel as an accused thief. Gross makes Zawrel disappear behind bars as a witness to his Nazi past. When the young journalist Florian Klenk picks up the incredible story of Friedrich Zawrel years later, he encounters a web of silence, guilt and shame.
"A story from Austria. About slime and distortions in a country that, in its narrowness, does not want to allow greater clarifications because otherwise domino effects would be feared. And: a man, Friedrich Zawrel, who suffers from the language in which he is judged." CLAUS PHILIPP
