To West Germans everything remained the same; to East Germans suddenly everything was different . Some of these thoughts and memories are captured in Olaf Georg Klein's book, first published in German in 1994.

To West Germans everything remained the same; to East Germans suddenly everything was different: they were "trained GDR citizens without GDR" (gelernte DDR-Bürger ohne DDR). On one hand, unification was a process of self-determination, since the speed and extent of the changes corresponded to the people's will. Having conducted numerous interviews with former GDR citizens from 1990 to 1993, Klein composed his material into twelve first-person narratives.

From 1990 to 1993, at an unparalleled moment in German history, Olaf Georg Klein interviewed almost a hundred fellow former East German citizens, probing their experiences of the sudden collapse of the German Democratic Republic, then crafting that material into twelve first-person narratives.

Olaf Georg Klein's novel Aftermath was published in translation by Northwestern University Press in 1999. This is a collection of oral history transcripts documenting the lives of twelve former East Germans before and after reunification. The individuals whose stories are included in this collection represent a variety of age groups, occupations, and political views. Some had been supportive of the East German government, while others had been opposed to it. They all seemed to agree on one point.

What happens when the world in which people have crafted identities for themselves and lived their lives suddenly disappears? How does a person -- or a nation -- confront such a shock? From 1990 to 1993, at an unparalleled moment in German history, Olaf Georg Klein interviewed almost a hundred fellow former East German citizens, probing their experiences of the sudden collapse of the German Democratic Republic, then crafting that material into twelve first-person narratives. The result is a literary account whose narrators include representatives from the cities and the countryside, from young and old, from the East German power elite and the resistance, as well as from those in position to be critical of both the GDR and united Germany. The book was a sensation in Germany upon its publication in 1994, and the translation will be of interest to students and scholars in history and political science, sociology, psychology, and literary studies. It includes an introduction and extensive annotations to assist the reader in understanding the East German and unified German contexts. Olaf Georg Klein's novel Aftermath was published in translation by Northwestern University Press in 1999. Ann McGlashan is Associate Professor of German and Dwight D. Allman is Associate Professor of Political Science, both at Baylor University.
