Grenzenlos - Wo der Vorhang fiel
In June 1989 the Austrian Foreign Minister, Alois Mock, and his Hungarian counterpart, Gyula Horn, jointly cut through the «Iron Curtain». Since then, landscapes have changed, and economic ties, mobility and European freedom of movement are simply a fact of life for today's generation. And yet not all of the borders have disappeared. The optimism that broke out in many places 25 years ago sometimes seems even to have been superseded by a desire to re-establish the borders. What was the result of the fall of the Iron Curtain in the border regions? «Borderland Sentiments» looks at the economic, social and
cultural consequences and ramifications.
