Why did Jürgen Bergbauer die? The many friends and friends of the student, in the night of July 20. In March 1983 by a civil police officer with a shot to the head in the youth centre (JuZ) Gauting had been killed. The 30-year-old officials of a civilian group from Fürstenfeldbruck had mistaken the 14-Year-old who wanted to stay overnight after a party trip in the JuZ, with a burglar, who drove back in Gauting their mischief. The youth scene, but also many citizens after the fatal police outraged and shocked. There were vigils, protests, and a funeral March, with 1 200 people. It seethed, the mood in the place was explosive. And the subsequent judgment against the police officer - six months probation - was perceived as too mild. Today, Jürgen bergbauer would be 50 years old.
You've never received a letter of Apology from the man who complains Günter Schur. "For me, it's not going into your brain: Why did this have to happen?" The 80-year-old friends is the stepfather Jürgen, whose mother, Marianne, is currently in the hospital. "She asked me, a bowl of daffodils and primroses on the anniversary of his death on Jürgens grave," said the pensioner. He visited the grave of Jürgen regularly, the last resting place adorned with a commemorative photo and very well maintained. The rogue would be laughing Boy on the grave image today, maybe a gardener or an auto mechanic by profession. This had been his Plan. Jürgen was a "real hell-raiser," says the stepfather. He remains unforgotten. The man points to a plate and a stone that the mother-to-tomb set: "I miss You", it says.
