Death and transfiguration, although glorification is probably the more accurate term. Nothing new here, folks. Just move along now and go about your business.
Death as in the GDR, of course, as in dead as a doornail, long, long ago. Transfiguration/glorification as in the twenty-five percent of East Germans (or Germans of the East, if you prefer) that still thinks old communist Germany wasn’t such a bad place to live after all.
This wouldn’t be so bad if these were all just old communists thinking this, of course, but that’s clearly not the case.
