Barbara: ShockYa Movie Review

Before Mr. Gorbachev tore down that wall, tens of thousands of residents in East Germany remained frustrated that they could not escape from Communist oppression. Escape? For the most part, they could not even leave for a vacation, do some traveling abroad, and they certainly could not go to the Western zone of their own country. Traffic between Communist states and democratic nations was always one way, but in East Germany quite a few people lost their lives in trying to scale the wall that separated East Berlin from West Berlin, and others who lived outside of what is Germany’s principal city had tried to flee via the Baltic Sea to the West.

The story is too old to be commented.
