A year like any other? No, there is no harmony of years. Neither economically, nor metereologically, nor politically. The years resemble rather the ups and downs of a stock market. And some even recall the pattern of a life approaching its end: for me, 1991 was definitely a year with a downward trend. The GDR was deleted from the book of history and on its way into a footnote after the signing of the so-called Treaty of Unification by the chief negotiators of the FRG and the GDR, Wolfgang Schäuble and Günther Krause. For forty years it had been my life and my identity, it had been my way out of a small village in Brandenburg into the capital of the country and onto the heights of science. It had also been the way to my personal happiness.
It is an autobiographical narrative.
