Roughly 274 towns and 372,000 strikers were involved.Construction workers in Berlin marched to the Council of Ministers, chanting, ‘We are not slaves!’ and demanding to see Beloved and Respected Comrade Leader Walter Ulbricht and other top leaders personally.Günter Grass’s play ’The Plebeians Rehearse the Uprising’ is based on the revolt. They had no leaders, no organization and — no surprise — no real encouragement from the West. Buchnummer des Verkäufers A-170954
