, 1962

Who was Helmut Just again? GDR border guard, shot from the west. That fits the bill of the propaganda of that time. Streets were named after him in many places. Including in Eisenhüttenstadt. But things were supposed to be a bit more modern in this socialist model city. Street signs in the center were lit up! This was otherwise only the case in Berlin or Leipzig, if at all. A grand gesture, no doubt. But the GDR would not have been the GDR if these street signs did not face some difficulties. There were constant maintenance issues, the glass broke, or no lightbulbs were available. In 1962, the normal plastic signs were introduced again. After the wall had fallen, nobody wanted to know much about Helmut Just anyway. Since the early 1990s, the street has been named after the physician Dr. Semmelweise, ideologically completely unsuspicious, as the city hospital is just around the corner.
