Inhalt

The Nasty Girl

It all began so harmlessly ... Sonja is a schoolgirl who enjoys the affection and respect of the whole community. Not without reason, for she belongs to one of the most prominent families in town. What is more, Sonja has won a European essay competition and is awarded the town’s “Silver Medal” by the mayor.

Now she is keen to take part in another essay competition, the subject of which is “My Home Town during the Third Reich”. She begins to search for facts but runs up against mistrust and reticence. The municipal archives are reluctant to release the desired documents which makes it impossible for Sonja to enter her essay by the closing date. Years later, after having settled down with her own family in the community, Sonja turns up at the municipal archives again and demands access to the documents. She is no longer a child now, and she is not to be stopped in her determination to find out the truth concerning the history of the town. The town, however, has its own ways and means of silencing Sonja. A life and death struggle ensues.
