In the 1980s, about 16,000 young Mozambicans had been employed as contract workers in the former German Democratic Republic. Up to 60 % of their earnings were withheld and transferred to Mozambique. After the fall of the Berlin Wall the contract workers were sent back home over night. 28 years later the so-called Madgermanes still march the streets of Maputo every week and claim the outstanding payments. The Mozambican government owes the Madgermanes nearly 100 million US-dollars.
