The old theater

The East German military camp of Wünsdorf, city headquarter to the Nazis and then the Soviets, was once home to 75,000 USSR men, women and children.
‘Little Moscow’ has been quickly abandoned after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the reunification of Germany.
The Red Army arrived here on April 20 1945 and during years provided the place with every comfort and facilities for the pleasure and relax of the army, including a theater.
Now the site and the backstage have uneven surfaces, broken glass, debris and it is difficult to access.
Nevertheless there is still plenty of life: the echoes of the actors, the austerity of the audience, the creaking of the stage still float in the dusty air of this unique place.
