Victor Grossman is an American journalist who worked in East Germany (The GDR). The oly one in history yto have graduated from Harvard and the Karl Marx University of Leipzig.

I knew his colleague John Peet. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_P...%E2%80%931988)

And I have met Victor on several occasions. For sure the security folk have a file on me !

Not all that happened after 1989 was positive or for the benefit of the 17 million on The East. The economy of the socialist GDR was taken over by West German Finance Capital. Who paid the price ?

Neal Ascherson has an interesting piece that goes beyond the simplistic coverage in much of the mainstream media

I lived in Berlin for a couple of years in the late 70's, early 80's; it was another world, imagine a place the size of the Isle of Wight with a wall around it. Then, when the wall came down, we had just moved to Münster after following the build-up on German TV for several months; we just couldn't believe what we were seeing in front of our eyes.
