dc.description.abstract Under the oppressive rule of the German Democratic Republic (1949-1990), the East German people struggled to find ways to express themselves. For many, especially the younger generation, the Punk movement of the 70s and 80s became a unique East German symbol of freedom, anti-establishmentism, self-expression, and resistance. However, the authoritarian state did not tolerate resistance or self-expression, harshly persecuting members of punk bands and civilians that dressed in punk clothing. Despite the risks, the Punk movement persisted in the GDR, becoming an everyday part of life that encouraged young people at the time to think about and promote social change. en_US
