East Berlin & the Cold War legacy
Intrigue, double agents and impossibly high stakes, no wonder the Cold War has been the subject of so much cinema and literature. Berlin was at the heart of it all. Peer behind the (Iron) curtain, explore tensions, persecution and terror, in a time when families were torn apart and the city divided between the East and West, democracy and communism.
