Online exhibition "Years of Change" in co-operation with Google
Working together with the Google Cultural Institute, the DDR Museum launched its online exhibition "Years of Change" on 8 November 2012. The fictitious diary of the author Uwe Neuman tells the story of the events surrounding the fall of the wall, the transition to democracy and reunification from the perspective or an ordinary East German.
An "average Joe," Uwe Neumann is neither a hero, an intellectual, nor a convinced Communist. Instead, blessed with solid common sense, he always goes with the flow in an attempt to make the best of every situation. Although having never lived, as an archetype of the average citizen, he remains immortal. He tells the story of the end of East German Communism: demonstrations on the Alexanderplatz, the fall of the Wall, queuing up for the West German "welcome money" Modrow purchases.
