My name is Günther Raubschaentze and I am the administrator of this homepage together with STASI and FDJ. My biological name is Human Being or just “Me”.
I have been working for IFA Wartburg since Erich Honecker ordered me to. I know Heinz and Rolf, I have been drinking tea with them and I have assisted them during all of their recording sessions. For example, I drove the tractor that you can hear at the end of the track “Agrarwissenschaft im Dienste des Sozialismus”!
To be perfectly honest, I know everything about IFA Wartburg. But since I am sworn by oath not to disclose anything, I will keep quiet about everything forever. Well, except for what I am publishing on this blog of course.
Many people have asked me about our page updates from such early dates as 1961, which is long before the Internet was invented. The answer is that Internet was invented by STASI and installed quietly everywhere throughout the entire East Germany. You can still find remains of the original STASI-internet in the walls of almost all private residences and hotel rooms.
Another question that is quite common from you readers is why we don´t use the www.ifawartburg.com domain.
We used www.ifawartburg.com initially because .com stands for communism. But since people in the west started to believe that it stood for commerce, we decided to start using the swedish www.ifawartburg.se as the main domain name.
So, don´t be afraid to send us questions. Nothing is weird and we won´t register you or investigate your social network or anything like that. I am working more than full-time to make this site interesting and up to date with the latest information about the East German music group IFA Wartburg. Just let me know what you think and I will help you out!
Have a nice day, all you IFA friends all over the world!
Your always listening friend in East Berlin,
