  • “The best-kept collection of Cold War memorabilia.”

    — Vice
  • “A comprehensive pictorial history.”

    — The New York Times
  • “…quite possibly the greatest such collection in the world.”

    — The Atlantic
  • “…an extremely detailed story on the daily life in the DDR, probably a more coherent one than its inhabitants could ever tell. It is a fascinating and rich (with its weight of 5kg) source of the visual culture of that era, which is definitely making its comeback today…Inspirational goldmine for artists, designers (and hipsters), it will look majestic on your coffee table and it will certainly keep you amused for a long time. A real must-have.”

    — Happy Famous Artists, London
  • “This magnificently produced volume offers a substantive contribution to (Cold War) debates and is an invaluable aid to a deeper understanding of a crucial chapter in Germany’s turbulent history.”

    — The New York Times Sunday Book Review, New York

Beyond the Wall presents an amazing historical snapshot of a country and culture that no longer exists. As the only book on our coffee table, it always gets picked up by guests who are instantly intrigued. Anyone can find something fascinating in the book, whether or not you’re already a history buff.”
