Format: Paperback
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the world of your childhood were suddenly swept from under your feet and made to disappear forever, replaced overnight by a completely new political and social reality? This is what happened to an entire generation of East German teenagers, including Jana Hensel, whose autobiographical narrative begins with an account of how, in Leipzig in November 1989, she joined the throng of fellow citizens gathering in tense anticipation of the fall of the Berlin Wall, aged just 13 and oblivious to the uncertain future awaiting her.

The text, written from a first-person perspective as a reflection of past memories, is an intriguing compilation of anecdotes which tap into the author's personal experiences of her childhood before reunification and of her new life after it. Hensel describes the abrupt changes to her school's curriculum shortly after the collapse of the Communist state, her history teachers reduced to learning the material themselves to stay one step ahead of the pupils. Later, she finds herself unable to participate in a conversation with students from other western European countries about common cultural icons, highlighting the immense cultural void in her upbringing - and she describes in poignant terms the gulf which develops between herself and her parents, who are woefully ill-equipped to cope with the new political and social environment.

Readers of Florian Illies' 'Generation Golf', a book which also comprises anecdotes based on the author's experiences, may find parallels with this insightful testimony of a lost heritage: in a way, 'Zonenkinder' does for a generation of East Germans what Illies' book did for a generation of West Germans.

Ich habe es ein gutes, interessantes Buch gefunden (aber ich bin nicht aus Deutschland!). Ich würde es empfehlen.
For any English speakers - the German is not too difficult, so you should be able to plough through.
