The piece “Let’s meet in better times” tells the story of an Internet activist from Germany who during the Arab Spring provides support to Syrian insurgents. At first, the hacker, who leads a solitary life, unexpectedly turns into a hero of the virtual world and is intoxicated by his new role in life. This goes well until he is overwhelmed by the traumatic war atrocities he witnesses and comes close to committing suicide.
