"November 9 is not a celebration at all for us," said Hans Bauer, chairman of the Society for Legal and Humanitarian Support (GRH) which helps former East German state employees, including Ministry for State Security, or Stasi, officers.
"Most of our friends would say they are not at home in this Germany," said Bauer, an East German state prosecutor. His association is waging a war over history and feels obliged to "put the record straight."
"Anyone who had a responsible position in East Germany, their whole lives are now seen as unproductive and inhuman. That hurts their human dignity," he said. "It may be too late to rehabilitate individuals but we want to rehabilitate society."
Asked about the failings of the East German system, Bauer cited low productivity levels rather than a lack of freedom.

Hans Bauer, who heads a pressure group called the Association for Legal and Humanitarian Support, acknowledges that as a deputy chief prosecutor, he worked closely with the Stasi and prosecuted "people who violated the law against leaving the country." He does not directly defend the shooting policy.He doesn't exactly condemn it, either. "One can only judge the shootings at the border in the context of the circumstances," Bauer said. The East German authorities "did not commit any human rights abuses," he said.

A memorial Mass for Hans Bauer will be held at 9:15 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, in St. Alphonsus Church, at the corner of Lincoln, Wellington, and Southport avenues.Hans was the president of the Schubert-Lyra Chorus and an active member of the German choir of St. Alphonsus when he passed away on Dec. 25 at age 70.The German-American community of Chicago has lost a good friend, and he will be sorely missed. Alfred Schoepko, director of the German choir at St. Alphonsus, announced that the choir will sing the "German Mass" by Franz Schubert for this occasion, as he felt that it was a very appropriate Mass.The Kyrie begins with "Wohin soll ich mich wenden, wenn Gram und Schmerz mich druecken?"(Where shall I turn when grief and pain depress me?) So why is it called the "German Mass"?
All are invited to attend this Memorial Mass for Hans Bauer and hear the German choir of St. Alphonsus Church sing Schubert's "German Mass" in its original language.For more information call (773) 525-0709.
