How do you deal with right-wing extremists in the neighborhood? Exclude, tolerate or involve? Rural regions in particular are vulnerable to the infiltration of nationalist settlers. Right-wing extremists penetrate village structures with strategy and system, pretending to be nice neighbors, committed citizens, philanthropists and troubleshooter without the locals knowing of their ideological convictions. In particular, the local volunteer fire brigades and local football clubs are infiltrated by the Nazis. This also happened in the small village of Groß Krams in the west of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, where the two right-wing extremists Sebastian Richter and Ragnar Böhm seem to be part of everyday village life. One of them works as a firefighter. But there is also resistance from a female lawyer who has moved in from the big city. In Appen, a village in southern Schleswig-Holstein, the state chairman of the Hamburg NPD wanted to join the village's football club incognito as a nice athlete from next door. But the club's management said no when they found out about the man's political background. The documentary by Hans Jakob Rausch illuminates the infiltration strategies of the extreme right and the difficult balance between tolerance and engagement against right-wing radicalism.
