A journey to a bygone state
The protective wall and barbwire shielded the GDR from the outside world, while, on the inside, the Stasi was watching. But what was life in socialism like? Did it only consist of Spreewald gherkins, nudism and concrete-slab buildings? Or of full employment and queueing?

After 20 years, people have forgotten or pushed things out of their memories.
