It came out of the sky :Neubrandenburg, DDR Jan 1990

I was retrospectively glad that the FDJ had sent me to Neubrandenburg for a few days,even though it had neither tram nor trolleybus system. It had been heavily bombed during the war and had contained many new buildings,a ring expressway and a pedestrian zone.. The ancient medieval brick gothic gates had been reconstructed and there were odd sculptures here and there. This one, for instance, beside the lake,depicting crests of the twin towns of Neubrandenburg. It resembled perhaps a seed or a virus. Was it meant to be lying horiontally? I never knew. It was to be found in the then "Kulturpark" beside the idyllic Tollensee lake which almost reaches the town centre. Skies were leaden in unseasonally warm weather.

Wissen Buerger von Neubrandenburg ob dieses seltsame Denkmal noch da - naturlich ohne Wappen der DDR -ist ?
