From behind the Berlin Wall to FREEDOM!
"We always have a CHOICE"
I'm Barbara Hofmeister at the age of 8, my father made a CHOICE which totally changed her life.
We lived in a small village in former Communist Germany. Life was great there at least it was for me as it was. We had our own house, first TV in the village, first private telephone line. My Mom stayed at home and I was the first grandchild in the family. I was a spoiled and happy little bunny.
For my Dad, life was different and bleak. He was an entrepreneur and the Communist regime did not appreciate that.
Dad fought the Communists but...etc.
Communism made it impossible for him...etc.
We had to leave...etc.
Escaping from East Germany was dangerous...etc.
Imagine, hiding in the boot of his friend's car...etc.
