more pitted wall

Both photos illustrate my impressions about East-West relations that time. People in the West were rather ignorant concerning life in the East. Did anybody ever watch the news programme ‘Aktuelle Kamera’? Only few people tried to peep through slots in the Wall. What would they discover?

In turn, people from the East were rather well informed about things which happened in the West (except the ‘Tal der Ahnungslosen’ at Dresden where West TV didn’t reach). But at the end they couldn’t verify because they never got the chance to peep through the wall.
