Before the Fall

what life was like in 1989 before the Wall came down. talks about immigration (of both Germans and non-Germans) and the impact of East Germans who chose to leave East Germany rather than stay put (which, previously, the author would have thought the nobler option)--for it was the former that caught the attention of the world

Some People Can Even Sleep Through an Earthquake

we interrupt the scenes of German life to hear about the author's profoundly negative views on socialism, views that were clearly shaped (I would say, too much so) by the Soviet Union

The Genealogist

a forgettable chapter about some German genealogist who didn't want to be descended from Charlemagne but, it turns out, is (along with half of Europe it seems). apparently genealogy was really popular in East Germany
