Original Caption

"On 30 January 1990, the former Chairman of the State Council of the GDR, Erich Honecker, fled with his wife, Margot, to Lobetal near Bernau. Pastor Uwe Holmer, director of the Hoffnungstal health services centre, granted them church asylum, even though the SED authorities responded by refusing to allow Holmer’s children access to higher education and constantly harassed his centre."
