There is a lot of factual and historical information about socialism, and no lack of books on it. But what was life like for people who lived in a socalist country? This is the question that is answered in this new book. The wall fell over 30 years ago, and the realities of that time have begun to fade. Some people have already become nostalgic, such as former Party functionaries and others who benefited from the communist rule. For the rest, however, it is important to bear witness to what it was really like to live in those times before the memories begin to vanish. The stories in this book are by their nature far from complete because memory is not linear but impressionistic. Still, the reader may find them of interest because they are the legacy of a lost socialist world.
Readers who are interested in the life of ordinary people in the course of history will definitely want to add “LIFTING THE IRON CURTAIN” by Christoph Werner to their library. The well written book presents an often fascinating insight into a way of life German people of the 21st century simply do not know and will very likely never experience themselves. The various stories cover interesting topics like socialist economy, Politburo, what collectivisation meant for agriculture, and which role the freedom of expression plays in a socialist country.
