6 months in vain

The West German Minister of Intra-German Relations responded to another of my friend’s letters.

Meanwhile I grew desperate and suspicious whether they would just release me back into the country.

That fear had driven me to vividly and unmistakably express my firm will to leave this country no matter the cost.


This had bought me another stint in solitary confinement.

At the time of this writing I fell seriously ill.

The uncertainty drove me crazy.



The letter states:

“Unfortunately there has been no willingness on the part of the GDR.

However we remain committed with the same intensity to support Mr. Thieme’s case."
