Article Summary from Page 6

Madagaskar ist von Afrika nur durch eine 400 Kilometer breite Wasserstraße getrennt und doch ein eigener Kontinent. Im Heimatland einer afroasiatischen Mischbevölkerung – so erlebten es Erich Follath und Fotograf Thomas Mayer – spielen Dorfgemeinschaft und Familie eine wichtige Rolle. Staatschef Ratsiraka, ein Marxist, hat den Kurs gewiesen: Zurück zu den Vätern.

Article Summary from Page 6 (English Translation)

Madagascar is separated from Africa by a channel of water only 400 kilometres wide, yet is it its own continent. In the homeland of a mixed Afro-Asian population – as experienced by Erich Follath and photographer Thomas Mayer – the village community and family play an important role. The head of state, Ratsiraka, a Marxist, showed the way: Back to the fathers.

Article Summary from Page 3

Madagascar: Zurück zu den Vätern.
Auch die Insel vor Ostafrika hat sich ein moderndemokratisches Dekorum gegeben. Aber gleichzeitig verstärken sich traditionelle Lebensformen, die sich auch in der eher europäisch wirkenden Hauptstadt Tananarive nicht verleugnen lassen.

Article Summary from Page 3 (English Translation)

Madagascar: Back to the Fathers.
The island just off East Africa has given itself a modern democratic system. But at the same time traditional ways of life have been strengthened, even in the rather European capital of Tananarive.
