Dear Sir or Madam, My in English Translated book In September 1975, I filed my first application at Magdeburg town hall for permission to leave for West Germany. After many attempts to change my mind, and following reports by IMs (unofficial informers for the Stasi, the State Security) that I was planning to defect, I was thrown in prison four months later. Going on hunger strike a number of times and filing complaints during my time on remand had little effect. Torgau hard labour prison had several Stasi liaison officers on site and many of the inmates were Stasi informers. I consistently refused prison rules, forced labour and political education (phrase-mongering). I also refused to take part in prison yard military drill. In this way I hoped I might be regarded as ‘intolerable’ and so be deported to the West. Of my four years in prison, I spent a total of 14 months in strictest solitary detention, where smoking, writing and reading was prohibited and mail from home was withheld. At night I had to sleep on a wooden board without a mattress. Lunch was provided once every three days only, otherwise just two slices of dry bread mornings and evenings. During interrogation I was routinely insulted and referred to as an antisocial pig, rat, scum, parasite, enemy of the GDR, criminal, louse etc. They threatened that I’d never reach pension age and so would never be allowed to leave for the West. All I wanted was to be free, but the GDR wouldn’t let me go. Their laws were inhumane; any kind of resistance or opposition was punished with long prison sentences. Back then I didn’t yet know that I’d be imprisoned for a total of four years. If you have ever spent time in a dark, cold cellar you’ll be able to imagine how horrible it was to be down there for weeks and months at a time. Those in positions of authority during the GDR dictatorship were almost never prosecuted and are today living the good life on undeservedly high pensions, paid for by the taxpayer. Many perpetrators are still to be found in ‘Die Linke’ (‘The Left’) political party or even serving in the police or in public office in the eastern part of Germany. They stir up hatred against their victims and try to convince themselves that their conscience is clear. We, the former political prisoners and victims of Stasi terror, are slowly dying out.
