Produktbeschreibung
Nestling behind the Iron Curtain, the 16 million inhabitants of the German Democratic Republic have come to be viewed as a care-worn people forced to make do and mend with only nude swimming and a special form of pickled gherkin to enliven a very drab life. What was life really like under Socialism? Was it all Stasi repression and shortages or a Socialist paradise of full employment and social security? Take a look "behind the wall" and find out for yourself. All our exhibits are waiting to be touched, used and experienced - start the Trabi, try on the clothes and reach inside the drawers and cupboards. This companion volume to the exhibition introduces readers to life as lived under German Socialism - 66 chapters telling a scintillating yet balanced story recreated by our inhouse experts.
