Just a walk down the street, where the wall used to be 20 years ago. In the window are 3 books to take away: “Alte Eisenwerke in Schlesien und Mähren”, a novel by Peter Härtling, and a book about historyOn the path between the two walls of the former country is a broken picture:Wall … How long still? Häh?
A man is talking to mee; if I am a free man, or a slave, and as I’m not fast enough to answer he tells me to be a slave.
I ask him, what he thinks about himself; and proudly he answers, he’s a free man. Profession: Physics. Wow. I should have seen it.
On my way back, I saw in the window, that the historical book and the novel of Peter Härtling were gone, but someone left some cake instead. I left the Eisenwerke, brought the cake home an had a good talk to my daughter while eating the cake.
