"In a country that no longer exists": Posen in front of the plate: A new film takes a look behind the creative fashion scene in the GDR

The day her life was turned upside down, she was too late. Summer 1981, Aelrun Goette rushed through the East Berlin S-Bahn station Grünau on the way to school. She usually avoided public places because a patch of "Swords to Ploughshares," a symbol of the peace movement, was stuck to her jacket sleeve. "I ran straight into the police's arms," ​​says Goette today. They arrested her, the hope of getting her high school diploma was gone. "The school management certified that I was not a mature socialist personality," says Goette. "I was able to forget about studying."
