30 Years of German Unification (or 29 1/2)

You are invited to an online presentation and discussion about
“My life in the German Democratic Republic – Rev. Friedrich Demke”

I’d like to invite you to this special meeting. Since it is unclear when we will be able to have a larger gathering in the church, this will be an online meeting. Please find the invitation below.

I decided to conduct the meeting in English to include everyone who showed interest in the theme.
My focus will be to share personal experiences in the GDR. I grew up in a Christian family, and was never a member of any organization or party. I will talk a bit more about the role of the church
during the time of socialism from my personal perspective. I am everything but an expert in the field. Do not expect an all inclusive historical presentation, but rather a personal reflection on my biography for the first 28 years of my life.

There will be enough time for you to ask questions. If there are already some, you are welcome to mail them in advance to

If you are not familiar with zoom and wish to run a test please let me know. I would sent out an extra invitation to you for Friday 5:00 p.m. with the opportunity to call me with your phone in hand so we should hopefully be able to solve tech issues in advance.

The host is called “Rolland Lapointe”, this is because I am using the pro account of our church, so we have no time limits, I am planning to be there for you till 9:30 p.m., but if you know the system you can just sneak out if you had enough. Looking forward to meeting and seeing you.

Best wishes,
Friedrich Demke
