Iron Curtain

Few months later, the first crack in the Iron Curtain opened when hundreds of East Germans fled across the Austrian-Hungarian border.

Iron Curtain

"Shall we lives as slaves or free men?"
(Sándor Petőfi)

"Iron Curtain is isolated the East from the West. It took away or freedom. It held us captivity and fear. It tormented and humiuliated us.
And finally we tore it down."
