The Way to Freedom

Old Trabant cars parked near the German Embassy in Prague were a nostalgic reminder of the heady days of 1989 when thousands of East Germans fled to the West via Prague, getting asylum at the West German embassy until they were granted free passage. To mark the 30th anniversary of the East German exodus, the German Embassy in Prague organized a festival titled The Way to Freedom.
