A Divided Germany

The end of WWII brought about a divided Germany. One part had three sections under the control of the US, Britain and France, the other ruled by the Soviet Union. The ways of life were very different.

East Berlin, a Pre-Unification Memory star
Crossing to East Berlin through Checkpoint Charlie could be complicated in pre-unified Germany. Especially if there was only one person who carried two passports, one for a child, together with large camera carry bag loaned out but unknowingly returned with side pockets filled with foreign currency.

Ostalgie a Taste of East Germany with Recipes star
In communist East Germany meals were planned around what was available that day. Queues were long and legendary and a banana seen on television but rarely in a store. Appetizing healthy food was served nevertheless, so for a "Flash into the Past" here is a taste of East Germany.

Rabbit A La Berlin, Life After The Wall Came Down star
Its original title was Mauerhase - Hare That Lives by a Wall, and Oscar nominated "Rabbit A La Berlin" uses Berlin's death strip rabbits, it was a bunny utopia, to symbolize the end of a totalitarian system, the fall of the wall, end to communism and its consequences. A different perspective.

The Berlin Wall, Germany Remembers star
East Germany began building a wall across Berlin on August 13th 1961, and while it existed the Berlin Wall defined the cold war and division of Europe. November 1989 the exits were opened by government decree, and families who had been separated for decades could be reunited.
