About this product
- DescriptionIdentical concrete housing blocks are an iconic legacy of life behind the Iron Curtain. Amnesiopolis studies the construction of Marzahn, the largest prefabricated housing project in East Germany, asking whether a move from 19th century slums to functional socialist housing offered a radical break from Germany's individual and collective pasts.
