There is about 2.5 million Turkish minority members in Germany. Every year there is at least a dozen of Turkish women beaten to death by their husbands or other family members. The actual scale of those crimes in Germany, where law and order are so highly valued, is unknown – according to the official data, in Turkey there are committed more than 300 so-called honor killings annually and 40% of wives are violence victims.
A Turkish girl was sent to Germany and forced to marry when she was 13 years old. Soon after, her hell has begun; she was beaten and abused in different ways. After several years she managed to run away; she has been hiding until now – only because of that she is able to tell us her life story.
