Cold War




The photograph above sums up the madness of the Cold War years.  The watchtower to the left is in the German Democratic Republic, the one on the right is an American tower in the Federal Republic of Germany.


Your group can begin to get some understanding of the times on a tour to Berlin, Leipzig and the former frontier zones.  You will visit secret police headquarters and prisons, bunkers from which the country could be run in the event of war, and the frontier itself, fortified as much against escape as against attack.
