Von einem, der auszog, das Fürchten zu lernen: Begegnungen mit besorgten Bürgern
“Why are so many people afraid of foreign domination? Why don’t I feel that way?” That’s the question Till Reiners poses to himself as well as others. The people nobody wants to talk to anymore. On walks with Pegida (Patriotische Europäer gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes [Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident or the German Anti-Islamic Movement]), in talks with AfD (Alternative für Deutschland [Alternative for Germany]) politicians and in concerned citizens’ living rooms, he tries to make sense of what is happening in Germany. How did this social atmosphere emerge that occupies space between perception and reality, fear and hate? Reiners is successful in taking an intelligently pointed look at a country in upheaval.
