MAGDEBURG - GERMANY - 12 AUGUST 2004 --Manfred WEGENER and SIGFRIED, retired steelworkers. Today they talk of the old days, before the wall went down, where one could buy a bread for only 10 percent of today's price, where the cost of using public transport was very cheap, and the rent low. They do not miss the old DDR time, but are not happy with how things look at present with very high unemployment, nearly 19 percent.-- PHOTO: ERIK LUNTANG / EUP-IMAGES
