On Dresden's westernmost outskirts, the concrete highrise project of Gorbitz is the largest of the city's sprawling industrial ghettos. From the looming apartment blocks, the blue-purple flicker of TV sets illuminates the dark, empty streets below. On the side of an aluminium sausage stand, the spray-painted graffiti is nearly identical to that which covers the walls in Dresden's other projects: "Reds Against the Wall!", "Foreigners Out!" and "Third Reich Again!".
