During WWII, the mountain was used as a work site extension of the Buchenwald concentration camp where prisoners were forced to march up and down, arms full with stones for building. The rust colors of the dilapidated buildings blurred past my window as we turned off of the autobahn onto back roads.
Old workers solidarity signs of upright fists and red roses hung by strips of scrap metal. The door to the house was unlocked so I walked right in. I heard a voice shouting from the upstairs that made my already lacking German language skills much more useless with a heavy dialect. Matt rushed downstairs and grabbed my bags, telling me that his host mom had told me to come up and eat some waffles with them. Then an undistinguishable retort. I followed him to the kitchen. The delay between her orders and my understanding them made things somewhat awkward until her husband walked in. He was also tall, but lankier compared to Antje, with a wide face and ears that stuck out so imposingly that it was difficult to avoid staring.
He seemed soft-spoken, at least when compared to his wife. He worked nights at a butchery in town because they paid more for unpopular hours. Sometimes he would sleep during his 15 minute break in his car parked outside to make it through the night. He has a family to feed after all. The screaming voices of young children reverberated in the hall outside. Antje put more waffles on my plate. She works nights as well, in a folder factory outside of town, so that she can be at home while her kids are awake.
I tried to keep up with the conversation at the table. The version I got from Matt was watered down as he could hardly keep up with her seemingly endless releasing of opinion. Daycares would have been provided cost-free, work days would have been shortened for families of more than 2 children under 16 along with monthly paid housework days, and there would have been paid leave to care for sick children.
Back then, Antje lived a life respected as an equal with a right to work, wages, and education comparable to her male peers. Males were no longer seen as the producer and provider and the females no longer as the consumer and housewife. Women had the means for economic independence and a greater self-awareness. They could see their work valued and recognized outside of the home. She rinsed the coffee pot out and started to scrub the counter with a sponge.
For him, time was something much more precious than I had considered it to be. For the westerners, leisure was a therapy from work. The town had a very eerie vibe. It was as if the residents had decided to paint their houses with the brightest colors from a crayon box Crayola from the west of course to cover up the grey and dusty character of the industrial surroundings. Loud speakers on every light pole that blasted daily announcements and propaganda just 20 years ago remained still, but now play elevator music all day long to create ambience.
There we were, two awkwardly misplaced Americans walking through a surreal, almost nightmarish photocopy of suburbia. As we walked on, we came closer to what felt like the heartbeat of town. The buildings and homes that lay closer to the mountain were less touched by repairs. Dilapidated wood and deteriorating curtains in the windows. Rubble and rusted moldings. There was something comforting about it all, like the wrinkled and scarred face of an old woman valiantly refusing to wear makeup.
There he stood, guarding the last rectangular garden before the path that we would later follow: His outstretched arms were wall-like. Was his gesture a warning or an invitation? The only bit of his face we could see was a sly smile. I knew there were eyes somewhere under that floppy hat. However the most curious thing about him was what he held resiliently in his left hand, the old flag of the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. The symbolic b lack-red-gold with a hammer and compass on a red disk surrounded by a wreath of two ears of wheat in the center still flew here in the center of everything, but tucked out of sight.
It was hard to find flags left over from the era. On the eve of reunification, many East Germans simply cut out the circle in the middle and flew their flags with gaping holes as if they were comparable to those waved by their friends in the west. That night after dinner, Antje and Daniel enlightened us of our need for gesellichkeit — socializing- with people our own age.
By this they meant a little party-machen. The only requirement was that we had to dress up like ossies. Among youth in Germany , easterners and westerners alike, there is a phenomenon called Ostalgie , or nostalgia for the east. Everyone had arrived dressed up as if the wall had never fallen. I saw everything from members of former communist youth organizations to members of the East German military and creative versions of Erich Honecker.
Old commie flags garlanded the walls alongside portraits of Marx and Che and music from old GDR rock bands like The Phudys played mixed in with Russian beats and other music that would have been approved by the SED. Matt and I joined a group of his friends from the local gymnasium and helped ourselves to some Russian vodka and the old GDR cola Club.
Many of the old products from the GDR have once again become popular and many prefer the nostalgic brands that have made a comeback such as Spreewald pickles and Moccha-fix Gold coffee. When the wall first fell, everyone wanted to get rid of anything that would connect them to the east and ran out to buy bananas and Levis.
Now these same bits and pieces are being paraded and hung up on the walls as decorations. Auf, zum letzten Gefecht! The poetic answer he gave to my question felt out of place amongst a backdrop of schlagermusik, the stench of sweat and vodka, and old party officials and young pioneer girls groping each other on the dance floor.
