Death of the Trabant - And the End of the Communist Dream
Symbolic of the end of an era – 1989. An abandoned Trabant lying forlorn at the factory where it was made in East Germany. The end for the car, the historic factory, East Germany and the communist dream. After German re-unification the historic factory, that once produced the mighty Auto Union race car before WWll, was torn down and is all but forgotton – A brand new VW factory was built over the ruins.
