    During the division of Germany we were travelling with the U-Bahn in Eastberlin and found the people looking very grim indeed. While in Westberlin passengers were always animated and talking the Eastberliners were practical “stumm” with an expression on their faces that indicated total absence.

      I know what you mean – know it from Poland at that time as well. I suppose it had something to do with the general air of distrust among people. You never knew you was listening to what you were talking about in public and onto whom that information might be passed on later. “Whatever you say, might be used against you,” kind of atmosphere. But it by no means meant that the people themselves were grim or unfriendly. Just being careful not to reveal too much. Good it´s over.
