"Years passed by until I lived in Leipzig, this time in a tenement house on the Landsberger Strasse in Gohlis, near the edge of the town, where I spent my lunch together with the grave digger of the Gohliser cemetery. Strangely enough, the determinant images that connect to this city for me are all connected with rainy nights." (H. Czechowski)
