When dreams come true
Frank Plunze was born on May 1, 1962, in Berlin-Pankow. Although he repeatedly tried to escape from the GDR, all of his attempts failed. His endeavors resulted in him being arrested and sentenced to prison. Frank spent five years in prison under inhumane conditions until he was redeemed by the government of the Federal Republic of Germany that paid for his release to West Germany in June 1987.
