Our trip this week begins at the Bay of Lübeck. Our reporter Tilmann Bünz is on the Priwall Peninsula. When the East German Commuinst regime was in power,the people here could feel the sea breeze,but no one was allowed in the water. To make the lives of residents living along the inner-German border more tolerable,the East German government funded the construction of inland swimming pools. Further south on the Schaalsee lake,a mansion offered East German border residents a place to stay. A West German fisherman was held there once for several days after he accidentally ended up on East German territory during a fishing trip.
