How was the birth of Jesus boy celebrated in the GDR? Yet the scientific atheism was part of the state ideology? Were there attempts of reinterpretation? Was the Christmas angel renamed to the “winged year-end wings figure” to make the people forget the religious content of the celebration? Or had Christmas already become a western-style orgy of consumption? And Santa Claus a hollow body made of chocolate? The “Theater ohne Probe” and the house historian of the DDR Museum, Stefan Wolle, are searching for traces. Where this trace leads to, is completely uncertain as always.
