“A country without a wall – no one would be mad at all”. This is what Fritzi writes on the sign, which her mom should take to the demonstration. Fritzi is only nine and not allowed to join. It is too dangerous for children to be at the “Monday demonstrations” in Leipzig, at least that is what their parents think. But Fritzi is stubborn: She desperately wants to know why so many of her school friends suddenly left for Hungary. And also, why did her parents all of the sudden start fighting while watching TV?



She only knows for sure that she doesn’t want the wall anymore!
