Re: Erich Honecker book set

Here is a follow up post. Many years ago a very good and close friend burrowed a book from my reference library and took it with him to Germany. All he said to me was that he wanted to read the book and to my surprise...when I got the book back here is what I get.

Thanks much for the correction and additional information, appreciated. Saddly no! About the Beluggyminusterium, or Minsitry of Interior, I don't remember, to be frankly. I only remember he was an academy professor. I must work again a correct translation of the online biographie found in Hungary, b...

Re: [grupo] Karl-Heinz Eckerbrecht, official photograph

I have also heard so many stories of DDR groupings being broken up. I had a friend of mine that it took weeks to get a DDR grouping back together on ebay. A lot of time and effort. Thank you Ralph, fortunately the seller didn't split the group. Saving groups from splitting is a common sport on ebay....

Re: [grupo] Small industrie: a life in a box

I agree with your points you made in your last post. Thank you! I read the average number of awards granted to a faithfull DDR citizen was 10... The booklets are typical of the 50ies, when the aktivist medals were prestigious titles (and when the huge bunch of other medals hasn't been created yet).

komsomol - great grouping. I know I am coming in a little late on this thread, however I am a fan of groupings because they tell you so much of a story like your grouping does.
