The death of the student Benno Ohnesorg on 2nd June 1967 is thought to have signaled the radicalization of the student movement in. This was also the case for the Iranian students in West Germany. This event explores the 2nd June 1967 as a trans-regional incident. Why did Iran under the Shah become such a central theme of the student movement? What impact did the events in the FRG have in Iran and what role did Iranian students play? But also: What role did the GDR and the Stasi play? Wolfgang Landgräber will be showing his award-winning 1978 film NAH BEIM SCHAH (Close to the Shah, FRG 1978), which explores the entangled relations from the point of view of the student movement. Afterwards there will be a post-screening debate with Bahman Nirumand, Hans-Christian Ströbele (MdB), Wolfgang Landgräber, Jens Gieseke (ZZF) and the Middle East historian Birgit Schäbler.
