The 1968 demolition of Leipzig's medieval University Church represents an essential turning point in relations between Communist authorities and the people they claimed to serve. The largest East German protest between the 1953 Uprising and 1989 Revolution, this intimate story clarifies how the "dictatorial" system operated and lost public belief.
