pic a day 13 – sculpture in urban space

maybe I sould rename it into pic every second day?

mah diesn't matter

ok, here we go:

again, it's from Pankow, even the same street as last time: Ossietzystrasse

but this time it's a much simple, closed up figure –  a working girl, kind of typical for the early 1950th:

created by Gertrud Claasen it's named Aufbauhelferin from 1952 – the tile is kind of hard to translate – but it goes along the way of female re-building helper (after the war, in to a new society)




I like her faint smile and the straightness of her back

she represents an important part of history – the fact that mostly women re-build the destroyed homes after the war(s), not only here in Germany, but basically everywhere in the world
