The apartment was basically just a long hose. The kitchen had a window to the courtyard. From the kitchen you came to the bedroom. That was just so wide that she could touch the walls with outstretched arms. Left the bedroom through the second door you came to the living room. That was a little bigger, about 3 x 3 m². Drove a truck past the house, clinked the glasses in theWardrobe. In the living room stood an oven, in the bedroom there was no way to heat, in the kitchen you could heat up the stove. Of course, it was also operated with wood or lignite.

There you had a real bathroom, sometimes a central heating, sometimes a furnace heating, a kitchen, a relatively large living room, a balcony and depending on how big the apartment was one, two or three more rooms.
