Postscript on Friday: I forgot to mention that I had a siesta Friday afternoon and fell asleap. When the cell door was opened for bringing in supper at about 5 p.m. I didn’t wake up immediately – I woke up with two officials beside my bed calling my name nervously – I was surprised about the urgency and the excitement, I sat up and put on my glasses.

Then they said, they enter the cell several times the day to check that all inmates are still alive respectively that they are okay. I said I was sleeping and therefore I didn’t response at once. They showed the red emergency button to me if someone feels bad. So at least every room in the new building features this as well as light switches for cell and restroom.

25/5/2012 – Friday – Beginning of my time in the clink

Having had a good night I set off about 7:40 am to the north exit near the former northwing [of the main station] where already some people were waiting who wanted to say goodbye to me. I was very happy about the attenders and I got several books as a present. I also answered the first interview requests. About 9 am we drove to Rottenburg. The Stuttgart newspaper’s reporter Mrs. Mayer interviewed me during the trip to Rottenburg.

At 10 there were also comrades of our common cause at Rottenburg at the market place beside journalists and camera teams. It strengthens me that so many people commiserate and approve my decision to serve my prison sentence. I was also available for interviews and pictures – it was all very public, there was hardly time for private moments and chats. weiterlesen
