"drüben!" ("the other side!") is Simon Schwartz's (Packeis) comic book debut combining a most important chapter of recent German history with his personal experience and fate. He recounts the story of his parents who had to make a difficult and life-changing decision: In the early 80s they left their home country former GDR/East Germany for ever – thereby rebelling not only against the famous and infallible "socialist workers' and farmers' state" and its omnipresent dictatorship, but also against their own family roots. Their only son is about to grow up between two states, starting with their departure. Years later he tells the story from his point of view.
