Title: Trabant. The Final Days of Production - Die letzten Tagen der Produktion 1990-1992
Authors: Martin Roemers
Publisher: Wasmuth
Year: 2007
ISBN: 9783803033246
Language: English, German

Description:
In the spring of 1991, the final Trabant was fabricated after 34 years of production. This signalled the end of an era: the compact car with a plastic body made in East-Germany since 1957 was the epitome of the Eastern Block car and was well-known beyond the borders of the German Democratic Republic.
In his picture of a blind war victim, photographer Martin Roemers discovered a haunting metaphor for the depths of the human soul in general, and consequently found thousands of people who lost their eyesight when they were children or young soldiers during the Second World War.
Trabant. The Final Days of Production - Die letzten Tagen der Produktion 1990-1992 documents the final production of the Trabant in Zwickau. The powerful photographs recall a lost period. They grant us insight into the work and everyday life of that time and preserve them for the future.
