Life Behind the Iron Curtain 1982-89

“I live at the edge of a world called GDR, in a village surrounded by hills, valleys and thick forests. It could be beautiful, but the iron curtain runs through it like a scar, and we just so happen to live on the wrong side of it.”

November 10th, 1989: Claudia Bierschenk was thirteen years old when the Berlin Wall came down. In this intimate memoir, she reveals a world ruled by ideology, restrictions, half-truths, superstition, but also magic and humour; all the while maintaining a child’s curiosity, observing the grown-ups’ strange behaviour as they cope with the day to day existence of living on ‘the wrong side’ of the Iron Curtain.
