„This upbringing indicated that I was never associated with the regime party. I will tell you anecdotally that I never saw a May Day parade. My father had an aunt who was a nun (...) and always on the 1st of May, my father ostentatiously got on the bus with me and we went to visit the nun‘s aunt. Therefore, believe me, I have never seen a May Day parade in my life“.
