Fragment from another life


The man in front of me in the supermarket checkout queue

is wearing a T-shirt with the phrase:

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar

written on the back.


It means Human Dignity is Inviolable

and it’s the first line of the German Constitution.


I know this because it was a question in the German version

of Trivial Pursuit that I once played with a bunch of German

law students. And of course they knew the answer.
