That Was the GDR - A History of the Other Germany (1993)
This is the fascinating 7-part video documentary That Was the GDR - A History of the Other Germany (1993) which covers the unknown history of East Germany and is told from the point of view of its people, using authentic historical footage and documents. It covers cultural, economic, and political developments from the founding of the GDR in 1949, to German unification on October 3, 1990. Highlighted are: the 1953 uprising, the Prague Spring, Bitterfelder Weg, the building of the Wall, the cultural repression of the 1960', economic stagnation, Stasi activity, and the East German civic movement and popular upheavals that finally brought down the state. Together 6 hours long. A must see for everyone.

Episode 1: I Was a Citizen of the GDR
Former East German citizens - from Holocaust survivors, to artists, officials,civil rights activists and ordinary people - talk about their personal feelings, experiences, and attitudes toward the GDR.

Episode 2: From "Zone" to State
Events that led up to the construction of the Berlin Wall on August 13, 1961 and the final division of the two German states.

Episode 3: From Economic Plan to Economic Collapse
The development of the GDR's plannet economy, from its beginning to its failure.

Episode 4: For the People's Welfare
"Unity of economic and social policy," the program of the SED (Socialist Unity Party), became the trademark of the Honecker era.

Episode 5: Intellect and Power
The history of literature and art in the GDR was punctuated by State repression; such breaks reveal contestation between intellectuals and state power in the GDR.

Episode 6: Shield and Sword
From its founding in 1950, the Ministry for State Security and its political secret police (the Stasi) were the central instruments of domination; this "shield and sword of the Party," was seen as a defense against external and internal enemies.

Episode 7: We Are the People
This was the chant of the thousands of protestors in the streets of Leipzig and other East German cities in the fall of 1989.

I just downloaded aMule to try to get these files. I'm a complete ed2k newbie.

I have a "high-id" and am connected. I can see red_gonzo as a listed client. However, the speed is extremely slow. I'm only getting ~ 5kB/s. Is this normal?

if there are only a few sources then it's probably normal, depends on how much bandwidth an user can give out, should rise up when it spreads around... Smile

can also snag off of utube using something like vso downdloader(vers. 2.9) or firefox addons. can usually get decent quality. advantage is traffic shaping (from isp) doesnt detect this traffic and i get this stuff at full bandwidth often. (2mB sec). actually a pretty decent alternative for p2p. i use utorrent everyday but starting to use these tube grabbers with pretty much excellent results.

I find the odd issue with, say, FF and DownloadHelper, but they're fairly rare. DH is fantastic for downloading the lengthier videos and watching them later, archiving the ones worth keeping, and uploading them to sites like our beloved ConCen.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.

- "If we do not believe in freedom of speech for those we despise, we do not believe in it at all." - Noam Chomsky
- "Humans are not a rational animal, but a rationalizing one." - Leon Festinger
