Looking for help with UK based project about begrüßungsgeld

Ad type: Wanted
Location: Saxony
Date added: 15 Jan 2019

I am a UK based photographer and I've been working with the writer Malcolm Jack to create a series of written and filmed interviews and portraits with former DDR citizens who received the begrüßungsgeld back in November 1989. The interviews and pictures will become a social document of that time period which we are hoping to exhibit.

We are planning a trip to Leipzig and Dresden in mid February and we are trying to line up some interviews for whilst we are there. I must stress that this venture is purely a social document of that time and now, 30 years on, it is in no way political.
Any help would be most appreciated.
To be clear, we are looking for former DDR citizens who received the begrüßungsgeld, we would love to know what they bought with their money.

Many thanks.
