Red Love by Maxim Leo

The March meeting of "Discover Berlin through literature” group connected perfectly to the topic of last month meeting: a true story of a courageous lawyer who helped the East Germans flee the GDR. A special thank-you to our former WIB President who kindly invited the two groups together: "Discover Berlin through literature” and “History and Politics”, for a morning gathering full of lively discussions at her home on 26 March 2018.

We focused our attention on Maxim Leo´s Red Love (original title is Haltet Euer Herz Bereit), a compassionate family memoir of the author. He brings the reader to feel what everyday life in GDR was really like and gives an insight into what inspired the people to think and act in a certain way.
