Brandenburg, Germany. W.M. was born and raised in Grabko, a small village near the coal field of Jänschwalde. He is very reluctant to leave his hometown, where his mother, brother, and sister also live. The Swedish power company Vattenfall is planning to expand its east German open-pit mines, meaning that Grabko will be dug away. The necessary drainage for the brown coal mine in Jänschwalde affects the ground water levels in the surrounding area enormously. The lake and the forest in the nature reserve, near Grabko, are continuously loosing dangerous amounts of ground water.
