Abridged edtion

- German-German history and Stasi arrest
- abridged edition

Summer, 1972, in a Stasi prison awaiting trial in Berlin. Manfred Lenz sits in cell 102, his wife Hannah sits in another cell. Their two children are put into children’s homes. His attempt to flee from the Republic had failed – and torn his family apart. The time in prison is a time of solitary confinement, harassment and endless interrogations by the Stasi.

Authentic and without transfiguration, Klaus Kordon tells a part of German-German history.

This abridged edition includes those chapters in which the interrogations by the Stasi and everyday life in prison are narrated. With a detailed afterword by the author.
