The DDR - Revisited


The entrance to the village of Hötesleben (with the light green museum information cube).

How this view would have looked in DDR times.

The museum is "full scale" - all exhibits are in their original location.

The watchtower viewed from the western side and from within the museum.

The eastern fence (LHS of the picture) was hidden from the villagers by a high concrete wall.
Only the most trusted of citizens would have been allowed to occupy these homes.

The border defences would have been made invisible by this extra wall.
