The Memory Laboratories 
bebra verlag, 2013

"When you ask for directions in Eisenhüttenstadt, Brandenburg -- a town formerly known as 'Germany's first socialist city' -- residents will direct you towards places that no longer exist. "Go past the old school, turn right at the Soviet monument," they will say, pointing the rare tourist along a ghost trail of abandoned factories, street names recalling former communist heroes, former clubhouses and restaurants." A study of memory of communism in former East Germany.

The book was reviewed here by Regina Mönch in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
