Benno Ohnesorg

(Roughly) 40 years ago, university student was shot at a demonstration in Berlin.

40 years later – a primer, because until now the authorities officially never expressed regret over the accidental shooting of Ohnesorg by Berlin police officer Karl-Heinz Kurras.

According to Süddeutsche Zeitung (Spätes Bedauern in Berlin: Polizeipräsident legt Kranz für Ohnesorg nieder) police men laid a wreath at the memorial of Ohnesorg two days ago. The wreath was signed by Berlin’s chief of police.
