choir and sees the kids. He watches Sandman with them. Dad comes into check on the kids and sees Alex and asks if they know each other. The kids tell him its Alexander. Dad is in shock. Robert is called back to the party where he has to give a speech. He says I’ll be right back. Alex waits watching the Sandman. Robert thanks his guests for coming tells them to have a good time and goes back to talk to Alex. Dad waited for 3 years before he moved on from his family. Asks why alex is there. Alex says mother is dying, she had a heart attack and wants to see him one more time. Alex goes back and asks the driver what its like in space. The driver tells him it was beautiful but far from home. Laura tells mother the border is gone and its one country. Dad is at the hospital being told about the lie. Alex tells him the lie gets easier as you tell it then shuts the door on him. Laura has obviously told her… Dad sees the sister with her baby. Dad realizes its her she runs from him. Mom wants to get up they let dad in. Dad says over an hour. Alex says he hopes dad doesn’t slip up. They plan to celebrate the union one last time then end the charade.

Mom died happy she outlived GDR by 3 days. Wanted her ashes spread to the wind since its forbidden in Germany they used a Rocket built by Alex which became a firework. Closing Video What you should have taken was the transition between economic systems. Reflective of Germany and wider Europe as a whole. The reason there is east and west Europe because of this cold war era. Soviet system while it did not win the cold war and unraveled wasn’t a complete and total failure enacted by psychopathic losers. This was not dictators with starving people in gray coats. This would have been across the eastern block. 1960-1970 industrialized and modern cities with high levels of convenience. They put people in space they were ahead of the USA at the time. People were pretty upbeat, modernized, kids went to camp, more equal than capitalism, trying to not have winners and losers in society. Mom gets ultra nationalist doing community events, the west loses that helping the neighborhood thing. Softer and kinder than history gave it credit for. Eastern block came at a price of political oppression. People spend the cold war 300-400 people died trying to get across the wall. Trying to keep facists out when in reality they were more like the facist with no freedom of expression… Alex’s father bailed with the intention of bringing the family but mom was too scared to defect.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
