20 years ago in the GDR

Dr B has begun to post again both on Holy Disorder (another extract from my diary but also this on a day of anniversaries) and on Open source ecumenism.
What is interesting is that although the fall of the wall took place in November 1989 the real changes were all in 1990. 20 years ago the GDR was preparing for its first free elections and it was clear to me that the CDU would win. On the other side of the world in Seoul, Korea, Stephen was telling Heino Falcke my evaluation of the political situation in the GDR and he really didn't want to believe it.
