Life after communism (Issue 366)
April 2004, Issue 366
It's been well over a decade since the Berlin Walt came tumbling down. But instead of freedom and prosperity many of those who lived behind the Iron Curtain have faced a massive assault on their living standards and a demodernization of their societies. The NI explores what 'freedom' has meant for the peoples of Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. We travel through the wreckage of corruption and exploitation and give a voice to those struggling to build a real democracy out of the rubble.
