“Dog box trial” in Austria: Did the authorities turn a blind eye to child abuse?. In this episode of Inside Austria we reconstruct the martyrdom of a twelve-year-old boy who was exposed to violence from his own mother for months.

We want to know why the authorities have not intervened more strongly despite repeated indications of possible mistreatment. We talk about child abuse in Austria and Germany and ask what needs to happen so that children are better protected from violence. In the weekly podcast “Inside Austria,” SPIEGEL and “Standard” look together at the big and small scandals in Austria.
