South Tyrol - Between Hope and Violence

Südtirol - Zwischen Hoffnung und Gewalt

On 11 June 1961 - in the Night of Fire - a seriesof bombings rocked South Tyrol. Within minutes of each other, more than sixty explosive devices were detonated. The rolling thunder was heard throughout the night. With these acts of violence, South Tyroleans tried to call attention to the oppression of the German-speaking Tyroleans in South Tyrol by Italian politics. «Freedom fighters»or «terrorists«? Half a century after the start of a series of attacks that claimed more than twenty lives and ended in the arrest and torture of South Tyrolean perpetrators, some of them speak out about their motives. Italian Carabinieri officers and politicians tell of the shock the bomb attacks meant to Italy. Finally, the question is investigated of what Austrian politicians knew and how they influenced the «militants» of the «Befreiungsausschuss für Südtirol».
