The extraordinary and exciting story of East Germany's first Black police officer, coming soon to Disney Plus!
The extraordinary and exciting story of East Germany's first Black police officer, coming soon to Disney Plus!

Samuel Meffire grew up as a Black German in East Germany and, against all odds, became East Germany's first black police officer. In the nineties, marked by upheaval and unrest, he was the face of an anti-racism campaign, received invitations to politicians' receptions, talk shows and numerous media appearances. But as Europe changed, he slipped from being a model policeman into crime himself, eking out his days as a hunted criminal and prisoner. After seven years in prison, Meffire fought his way back to life and once again went to the front lines of social upheaval, but this time not as a police officer, but as a social worker for young people with a serious history of violence, and as a successful indie author of dystopian crime novels.

In his memoir, Samuel Meffire gives an intimate insight into his emotional world. In the background and with an almost brutal frankness, he grippingly recounts his life across several continents and, looking back, gives us a fascinating insight into an overlooked period of history.
