3 Tage im September
Die Flüchtlingsentscheidung

The documentary "3 Days in September" looks at the weekend of 4-6 September, when Angela Merkel decided to allow refugees and asylum seekers from Hungary to enter Germany. It takes up the controversial and challenging ambiguity of this date and wants to get to the bottom of it, to find out what really happened.

For this documentary, we spoke with politicians, migration experts, refugees, journalists and volunteers. The sometimes very emotional and gripping memories of the interviewees correspond with rarely shown, very vivid archive material that once again brings the drama of those days to life in a moving way.

First broadcast: Tuesday, 13.06.2017 at 20:15 on ARTE
