The Berlin Wall - Twenty Years
One of the symbols of communism is the famous car of the day, the Trabant. A car that most people had to wait ten years to own and probably kept until death.
I saw one of these beauties on my trip to the former east Germany last year. A perfectly preserved "Trabi" as the nostalgic former East Germans liked to call it.
For interested readers here is the history of the Berlin Wall that divided Germany for too many years.
A photo gallery of then and now can be found here.
