AN EXHIBITION BY REISTROMMEL E.V. from March, 28th until April 04th, 2019.
In 1989, more than 90.000 contract workers still supported the fulfillment of plans in an ailing GDR economy. Thus, nearly half of all foreigners living in the GDR were contract workers and as such brought to the country to have cheap labour for a limited timeframe. They were from Hungary, Poland, Algeria, Cuba, Mosambic, Vietnam, Angola, North Korea, and China. By coming to the GDR, the young people tried to escape war and ruined economies in their home countries, where they also earned less.
