The deadliest disaster in German aviation history happened one year ago. The co-pilot of a Germanwings flight intentionally crashed the plane into a mountainside in the French Alps, killing himself and the other 149 people on board. Many of the family members of the victims are still receiving psychological counseling. They find it difficult to speak about their grief. Others have managed to return to their daily lives. Justine Rosenkranz met several family members who wished to speak with her about the loved ones they lost in the crash one year ago. They include a family from Haltern, the town that is still mourning the death of a group of high school students who were on the Germanwings flight.
