    Not much of a 'tribute', is it?

    I'm genuinely curious, are you trying to encourage people to look sympathically towards East Germany? Are you being nostalgic? Or are you being sarcastic?

    I'm all for ironic Eastern Bloc ost nostalgie, but looking at those photos doesn't make me think that the so-called DDR was a nice place to live

    If you've been to Berlin and seen how the Brandenburg Gate is again the centre of the city, it's quite bizarre to look at pictures of what a no-mans-land it was when the Wall was there

    Is there a point to this thread?
