i won an appointment with the local police on monday because someone
abused the tor network for fraud on amazon. My node seems to have shown
up in the logs of amazon so i am the one beeing invited.

I printed most of the documentation on the tor pages to make shure i get
understood what tor is.
I also printed the node list which clearly shows my node up and running.

Are there other interesting legal documents concerning german law i
might just take with me and clear the situation up more quickly.

Well, there is http://tor.eff.org/eff/tor-legal-faq.html, which explains that it is legal and has links to a few people - such as http://www.chillingeffects.org/input.cgi, if you actually have a C&D notice - or elsewise there is http://tor.eff.org/faq-abuse.html, and I know I read something about what to do - explain what Tor is, be polite, explain that it isn't you doing that, it's some other user. All those pages also have German versions, though I'm not sure if you already found them. Hopefully someone can find the other page I'd seen about dealing with law enforcement.
