Update: A Tourist in East Berlin 1971 – Photos

Interior, Hotel Berolina, East Berlin 1971

I took this shot inside the lobby of the Hotel Berolina – one of the “recommended” stops during our visit. It was all about how the government wanted their society to be perceived by visitors from the West.

Excellent article on what happened to this hotel:
