Even though I live more than 1000 kilometers away from my family and home Demmin, it now seems closer to me than ever before. Its history, its people, its macabre
dreariness but also ist shattered beauty have shaped me. It is a special part of me, which I seem to discover again and start to understand better, maybe also due to the physical distance to it.
All towns have their own stories to tell, and many are special. Demmin, also has one major
historical event that shaped its future as it traumatised this place and the people. This took place in May 1945 but still influences the most recent history of this town.
