Saxony inherited City’s cult song in the GDR “Am Fenster”. Last year, the Free State collected around 10,000 euros in royalties and license fees, announced the Ministry of Finance in Dresden.

Saxony obtained this income through a so-called fiscal inheritance. The state as inheritance always comes into play when a person has no parents or a partner, or when they have refused the inheritance.

The lyrics to “Am Fenster” are based on a poem by poet Hildegard Maria Rauchfuß. She died in Leipzig in 2000. The Free State of Saxony inherited her domain. (dpa)
