Soundtrack - How I left yesterday's world

You only really understand what freedom means when you don’t have it. When you have the courage to fight for it. Olaf Hintze, born in 1964 in the East German city of Erfurt, has experienced both worlds: during his youth in the German Democratic Republic he was very aware of his country’s shortcomings and had the courage to flee his homeland. He was twenty-five at the time and escaping from East Germany was still a life-threatening venture. Olaf Hintze’s story shows how the burning desire to have free access to literature and music and to live your life by your own rules gave him the courage to take this exceptional step.

No one could have foreseen that only a few weeks later the wall would finally fall — its foundations gradually undermined by people like Hintze, who left the country in their multitudes by crossing the borders or via the Eastern European embassies in the spring and summer of 1989.

  • the danger of underestimating total surveillance is an increasingly topical issue

  • a novel about the dangers of romanticizing a dictatorship

  • 2014 will see the twenty-fifth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
