  • In Mödlareuth was there a wall and a border inspection post. In more than 37 years, it was not possible to cross the border in order to go from one town to the other. It was even forbidden to greet from East to West. The border between EAST GERMANY and West Germany (BRD) ran along a narrow Creek that cuts through the village. The eastern side of the basin is located in the land of Thuringia, which until 1991 was in the DDR. The West side is located in Bavaria. Only a month after the fall of the Berlin wall, was the boundary in Mödlareuth opened, and residents got back the possibility to visit each other. First d. 17. June 1990 was torn hole in betonmuren of the mayors of the two halves of the village. On the initiative of mayors originated the idea for the creation of a Memorial and a border museum. Today can best be compared with a border area open air museum, where it is possible to visit the wall, restricted zones, guard towers and all the obstacles and death traps to prevent citizens of the DDR to escape to the West. A visit provides a basic understanding of the inhumane regime that could find to create grænsespæringerne to keep "their" people inside, while propaganda claimed that the aim was to keep the imperialists in the West out.

  • My home city is Jelenia Góra. Now I live in Berlin. The title of "little Berlin" Mödlareuth does not deserve. There has always been the border between Bavaria and Thuringia, also at the meeting, standing in front of the border closure in Thuringia, Germany.

  • A very graphic representation of segregation during the Cold War. A small village divided by the Iron Curtain. It remains as it was. Excellent.
  • The formerly divided city and as a Memorial remaining wall are worth a visit in any case. The museum contributes to the historical formation, however, short film, as well as information boards are to stressed objectively presented. In some places, one has the impression, for propaganda purposes unfortunately was something arg downplayed and glossed over. Affected witnesses, we have taken on the spot, were unfortunately sometimes shocked. To see the Memorial of the German Wall, which has been left as it what to remind future generations of the terrible segregation of Germany, is of course worth a visit. The adjacent museum however does need of meet the expectations, as both its short movie as well as the information boards barely reflect the history of the place in appropriate way. In parts, one gets the impression of downplay and whitewashing of the crimes that happened in the GDR. Present contemporary witnesses we met so have been shocked.
