Comic heroes Dig, Dag and Digedag

The adventures of the three comic book heroes Dig, Dag and Digedag are sure to awaken childhood memories for generations of people who grew up in former East Germany. Without the author Johannes Hegenbarth, there probably would have been no comics in the GDR. From 17 February to 13 May 2012, an exhibition at the Leipzig Forum of Contemporary History is devoted to the fascination of this comic book. It presents the history behind it, the circumstances in which it was written as well as some previously unpublished material.
