"Potsdam, März 1960. Am Platz der Einheit"
<< back
Picture 45: Potsdam, March 1960. The sign reads: „Our answer: joining the SED“. New members or candidates of „the party“, as it was officially and commonly known, have put up portraits with their names on in the centre of town. This would scarcely have been imaginable later, as membership of the party was not popular and new members were suspected of having joined simply to further their careers. The four dots at the beginning indicate that the text follows on from another sentence, almost certainly referring to the aggressive West.
