Escaping from the German Democratic
Republic and into life as a refugee.
To Austria, then back to Germany.
The language was the same, but Germany
and Germany were not the same.
This is the year when little Edi’s life changes
Her new home is called "refugee camp” -
for nearly nine months. Today, in 2010,
that’s a really short time.
But back then, for Edi, it was an eternity.
