The NSU trial has acted like a magnifying glass, revealing the fault lines that run through Germany. Bruchlinien uses the medium of the comic strip to reconstruct episodes that are not documented in photographs — events that were swept under the carpet in the trial. The drawings by Paula Bulling, based on three scenes devised by Anne König, interweave fact and imagination. They tell of three actors who, wilfully or inadvertently, played a role in the NSU story: an active supporter of the core trio from Zwickau, a civil servant in the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution in Cologne, and the daughter of one of the murder victims from Dortmund. The three comic short stories are accompanied by a series of interviews: with Barbara John, ombudswoman for the families of the victims, journalists Toralf Staud and Christian Fuchs, Ayşe Güleç, co-founder of the Coalition for Action on the murder of Halit Yozgat in Kassel, and Candan Özer-Yılmaz, widow of Atilla Özer.
