GSG 9 is a German TV-series about the special unit GSG 9 der Bundespolizei of the German Federal Police. It premièred in the Spring of 2007. Its original title, GSG 9 - Ihr Einsatz ist ihr Leben, is a pun on the words Einsatz and Ihr. Einsatz can be translated as “mission, stake, bet, dedication”, while Ihr means both “their” and “your”, depending on the context. Thus, it can be translated as, GSG 9 - Their Mission Is Their Life, GSG 9 - Their Mission is Your Life or GSG 9 - They Put Their Lives at Stake.
The series revolves about the members of a fictional GSG 9 unit summoned by the Federal Police to conduct operations where the regular police cannot handle such as terrorism, hijacking and kidnapping. The unit is also deployed abroad to countries like Belarus to assist state security forces in rescuing German nationals/retake German diplomatic buildings.
