Danes in the DDR 2014


In four programmes, we revive the country through the stories of Danes that lived in the DDR. There were children, who moved with their communist parents to the DDR. Young communists that travelled to the DDR to get closer to the actually existing socialism. Artists that went to the DDR to perform and tour around the country. But what drove them? What did they dream of, and what were their experiences of the country? In four programmes we travel back in time for a reunion with the DDR – as seen with Danish eyes.
