In 1992, hundreds of neo-Nazis and thousands of local residents besieged an initial reception centre for asylum seekers and an adjacent block of flats of former Vietnamese contract workers in Rostock-Lichtenhagen for days. The atmosphere heated up for days without the police intervening in any significant way. Finally, incendiary devices flew and the buildings were stormed. »Sonnenblumenhaus« documents the largest and almost forgotten racist pogrom in German post-war history and processes the survivors' point of view.
