The Stronger Socialism is, the Stronger the Peace

Wow. I've never been to Germany even though my mom's side of the family ist Deutsch and I have travelled to Europe several times. It's hard to even remember that for most of my life (well, my first 17 years anyway) there was an East Germany. These photos, taken by Siegfried Wittenburg in the 1980s show a side of Germany that seems almost impossible now.

I guess all I am saying is that East Germany was a reality for much of my life and yet these photos - taken while I was a teenager - seem to be from a much, much more distant past.
