I remember a happy childhood in a region which already at that time could not be considered as a region any more.

Though at that time I was still a child. And only a child. I had different concerns.

I remember a moribund region which was raising its own children in the living memories of a powerful industry which was already on its way out. These weren’t lies, but blinkers.

I remember thus that I wanted to leave,

Leave fast,

Leave far away,

Leave…for good?
