    soon-to-be-defunct

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    After only eight weeks of negotiations, Guenther Krause, then state secretary of the soon-to-be-defunct East Germany or German Democratic Republic, signed the treaty that would bring the two countries together.

    soon-to-be-defunct =

    defunct = having ceased to exist or live: a defunct political organization

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
