The least signposted museum in town.
But, once you find your way there, truly fascinating. On the site of the old Stasi HQ, in an eastern suburb. On the U-Bahn: Magdalener Strasse.
One of the floors is dedicated to a combination of old photos and what I guess we’d call propaganda. I hesitate only because we in the West weren’t and aren’t averse to a bit of propaganda ourselves. We just call it advertising, or campaigning.
But there are some DDR classics on show…
Happy astronauts. Soviet-DDR.
Says it all…
About John S
I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.
