The year was 1961. Khrushchev was in power and the Berlin Wall was being built. What was it like to be living in East Germany during those days? In this program, filmed toward the end of that pivotal year, correspondent Daniel Schorr cracks the boomtown facade of the city of Rostock to find out. Indoctrination and propaganda are recurring motifs as business, academia, religion, and the arts are profiled. A chilling interview with East German Communist Party leader Walter Ulbricht provides insights into the purpose of the Berlin Wall and the process of de-Stalinization as Cold War tensions intensified.
