In this series of interviews mathematicians who witnessed the German Reunification at the Institute of Mathematics in Potsdam or were hired shortly afterwards give an account of their experiences. The interviews were conducted by Prof. Sylvie Paycha in German language at the beginning of 2018. Further interviews were held in early 2019 by Dr. Elke Rosenberge and 2020 by Dr. Elke Rosenberger and Prof. Sylvie Paycha. Unfortunately, with the corona pandemic, some interviews had to be postponed.
We would like to thank the University of Potsdam, the German Mathematicians Association and Math+ Berlin Mathematics Research Center for their financial support.
