In the sixth episode, we talk to artist Deborah Jeromin about silkworm breeding in Leipzig allotment associations, its importance for the arms industry, and the connections to the airborne battle in Crete on May 20, 1941. A review of her book “Parachute Silk / Μετάξι αλεξίπτωτων” is available here: diablog.eu/general/parachute-silk-a-book-of-deborah-jeromin/
Correction: In the allotment garden association “Hoffnung West” “Arbeitsmaiden” were quartered, who had to work for the Erla-Werke (not for the HASAG).
