Mug made in the DDR for the FDJ about the MMM competition. The fair of the masters of tomorrow (MMM) was a youth competition in the GDR. Medals were awarded as prizes. It was organized by the FDJ and took place annually from 1958 to 1990. The aim was to increase interest in technology and science among socialist youth and thus to create new generation of engineers. The first events took place at school or company level; here you could qualify for the district, district and republic level. In October 1958 the Central Fair of Tomorrow’s Masters (ZMMM) took place for the first time and thereafter annually in Leipzig. For the purpose of fulfilling the plans for operational innovations, some marginal improvements were stylized as trade fair exhibits, so that the abbreviation MMM was turned 180 degrees (“upside down”) and became WWW “We Wurschteln Weiter” (We Struggle Forwards).
