More and more elderly people in Germany feel discriminated by society. This discrimination can take various forms.

In this assignment for Der Spiegel I visited Gerhard Wollank (96) and Ricardo Villanueva Cruz (67).

Wollank has been fighting against the fact that the fee for car insurances rises steeply for people over 65. Cruz got kicked out by his basketball club because “he was too old” at the age of 65.
