Spandau Prison


When I was a teenager I imagined traveling to Spandau and seeing the prison where Rudolf Hess was being held. After his death I for years imagined visiting the prison where he had been held. It was not until recently that I discovered the prison was demolished thirty years ago and a shopping mall for the English occupying army built on the site.

At the bus shelter in the previous photo there’s an ad for Parship on-line dating service. The standard text tells us that every eleven minutes a single person falls in love through the service. The women advertised are very white. At the erotikmarkt, on the other hand, we are told to follow our lust, and this apparently is assumed to involve a woman who is from the exotic lands to Germany’s East.
