Our topic in October is the DDR – the Deutsche Demokratische Republik.
The DDR (GDR in English) existed from 7th October 1949 until 2nd October 1990 and was created out of the Soviet occupation zone as a repsonse to the creation of the German Federal Republic several weeks earlier.
Today we talk about the creation and the economic and political systems that we set in place in the DDR and how the country was structured. We also talk our own personal experiences when visiting the country.
