“I like trains. I like their rhythm, and I like the freedom of being suspended between two places, all anxieties of purpose taken care of: for this moment I know where I am going.”
Anna Funder, Stasiland: Stories from Behind the Berlin Wall

“Most people have no imagination. If they could imagine the sufferings of others, they would not make them suffer so.”
Anna Funder, All That I Am

“She is brave and strong and broken all at once. As she speaks it is as if her existence is no longer real to her in itself, more like a living epitaph to a life that was.”
Anna Funder, Stasiland: Stories from Behind the Berlin Wall
