Deshalb werden hier natürlich zum Beispiel auch Aussagen zum Haus der Grafen/Fürsten Stolberg-Wernigerode getroffen. Nachvollziehbar wird die soziale und politische state of affairs ab Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts in Wernigerode beleuchtet. Ob die Revolution von 1848, ob erste örtliche Regungen gegen den monarchistisch-militaristischen Unrechtsstaat und dessen Reaktionen darauf im Jahr 1869, ob Unterdrückung der freiheitlichen und sozialdemokratischen Ideen während des „Sozialistengesetzes“ und der ideenreiche Kampf dagegen, ob der Bau des ersten Volkshauses der (europäischen) Sozialdemokratie im Jahr 1893 in Wernigerode, ob Wahlkämpfe, gewerkschaftliche Vereinigungen oder Streiks, ob Kriegsausbruch 1914, Novemberrevolution, die Entwicklung von KPD und NSDAP, der Kapp-Putsch oder die Ereignisse im Herbst 1923, ob die Weltwirtschaftskrise, die „Machtergreifung“ der Nazis und die Verfolgung ihrer Gegner, ob das Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges, die politische Konstellation unter der sowjetischen Besatzungsmacht, die zur Zwangsvereinigung von SPD mit der KPD und zu erneuten Verfolgungen von Sozialdemokraten führte, ob die state of affairs in der Sowjetischen Besatzungszone und die frühen Jahre der DDR, ob die Ereignisse der „Wende“ 1989/90 und die politischen Themen, die seit 1990 auf der time table standen: Nicht nur diese geschichtlichen Meilensteine sondern auch eher unspektakuläre und der Vergessenheit entrissene Begebenheiten aus der Geschichte Wernigerodes, Benzingerodes, Minslebens, Reddebers, Schierkes und Silstedts werden hier für den historisch, politisch und neighborhood interessierten Leser dargestellt.
