I would like to visit simply to see if I could contact my relatives on my grandmother's side since they were separated back after the wall went up and she came to the USA with my grandfather. I'm sure that beyond the politics of things, everyday people are pretty much the same for the most part.

I'm curious as to what you folks that grew up or lived in East Germany think about the movie, "The Lives of Others" if you have seen that? It is about artists in East Germany and the intrusion by the Stasi into their lives. It is pretty good. The equipment used in the movie is all original Stasi used stuff.

Marc - I have posted a couple of threads from the DDR forum that may assist with your question or even to ask more. The two threads includes some comments from friends that lived in East Germany. :-)
