I still admire our class teacher at that time. How he dared for a class trip to Berlin with a crowd of teenage pimple robbers. One week in the big city all boys class from 15 to 16 years old from the provinces. West Berlin in the summer of 1982. Squatters, Cate, Zoo Railway Station, Berlin Wall and the World Cup in Spain. A mix that can turn the heads of young people from Baderborn.
My class teacher was an old man at the time, a graduate historian with a doctorate. As a history teacher, he took us to the Cathedral of Baderborn Diocese, where he tried for hours to bring us closer to the beautiful Heavenly Portal.
He doesn’t know much about football. Prior to the school trip, when he was promoting a planned night cultural event in Berlin, Schillerteiter, Deutsche Ober, Philharmoni, gave us the bizarre hint: “But at the same time there is the World Cup,” he paused and asked: “Well, can I get a ticket?” Sometimes it’s easy for him to laugh.
Gurparstentum glowing at night
West Berlin seemed inaccessible to me at the time. What records, the gurborstandem shining in front of the car’s taillights at night, the worn out Grosberg, we city dwellers have never seen anything like this, of course, not even the horrible butcher hooks in the Nazi prison in Platsense In addition, in the train of continuous rotation, New Deutsche Well’s music cassette, dancing with the heart, corruption in the restricted area, there is radio traffic for police officers, Tina, it’s not big, what a climate, and of course above all: I feel good, I stand in Berlin.
According to Baderborn, we were staying at a Catholic institution somewhere south of Berlin. This city is dangerous, and fellow believers there have warned us to be careful at breakfast: I see the man standing in front of us, finger raised: “Numcom use, Raro doubles, chamber dress.” He wanted to test how he studied in our Latin Old Language Grammar School.
We understand: to make Berlin unsafe in a group.
DFP-Elf from the Craft Guild
We did that too, and some of them were almost magically inspired at the zoo. But don’t stare at pandas. But to make fun of the rooms there, you had to insert a coin to catch a quick glance at the naked women. Numcom Use, Raro Doubles, Chamber Dress. Corruption in the restricted area. Spider Murphy Gang then only got a minute lucky. In the afternoon at the Beepshow, in the evening the Catholic brothers live from Bernabeu Stadium in the Parish Hall of Germany and England. Tomorrow, Tuesday – when the DFP-Elf meet England in the 16th European Championship round – it will be 39 years ago.
What kind of squat was it at that World Cup German team, the Foster Brothers, Walls van der Paufs Hans-Peter Briegel, Wolfgang Tremler, Uli Steilik, Uwe Riders in the storm, it could also have been the German national team Craft Guild. Led by master craftsman Joop Dervall. Confused by Gijனின்n’s humiliation against Austria through the team stage, this is the World Cup, where I got its first significant cracks as a fan. Goalkeeper Tony Schumacher has yet to appear against France’s Patrick Battiston.
The group gave the outside world the impression that they did not care in the slightest about the means by which they came out and what the public thought of them. Nothing like that: dancing with the heart. Anyway, it’s very easy to find a lot of air conditioners in Grosberg.
It was really clear that the match against England, which had been in a severe crisis of meaning in those years, would end in a 0-0 draw. That too was 0-0. But our fellow believers allowed us to drink beer. So it’s not all tragic.
The next day, with beer and 0-0 in mind, we were taken by the coach via East Berlin. The New Deutsche Valley was shut down, and instead a GTR travel guide praised the benefits of military science lessons at the front of the bus. Before that, we sounded great to give GDR people their feedback. When the Border Guard boarded the bus and checked our IDs, 15-year-old loud Dmouth from Westbourne, West Germany, was very quiet.
However, we boasted to each other that we had two teachers at home who should be incited against military science classes. The red-faced Latin teacher who wanted to call us “boob birds” promised us: “I will make you very small. With hat. “
But I don’t want to be unreasonable: after all, he taught us what “Numcom Use, Raro Doubles, Chamber Dress” means. Who knew we would have escaped in 1982 at Sin Babylon in West Berlin.
