Projects

  • In the GDR, social origin and status were not supposed to determine a person's outward appearance and attractiveness. Therefore, attempts were made to enable a certain extent of social equality even in the field of beauty.

  • Starting in the early 1970s, the Iron Curtain became increasingly porous: During the "Honecker era," the GDR authorities recorded several million entries from West Berlin, the Federal Republic, and other non-socialist countries each year.

Cold War Berlin. Confrontations, Cultures, and Identities
by Konrad H. Jarausch, Stefanie Eisenhuth and Scott H. Krause (eds.)

No other European city can claim to have experienced such division and togetherness as Berlin. This volume of essays attempts to address the question of the peculiar character of divided Berlin during the years of the Cold War and connects the history of this embattled city with the over-all East-West conflict. A wide range of transatlantic contributors addresses Berlin as a global focal point of the Cold War, and also assess the geopolitical peculiarity of the city and how citizens dealt with it in everyday life – exploring not just the implications of division, but also the continuing entanglements and mutual perceptions which resulted from Berlin's unique status. Finally, the book then asks how these experiences were and are told: What identities did the division create, what narratives did it produce and how do they shape today's debates? Has the city managed to forge a common memory culture out of a divided past?
