Story

“Farewell Comrades! Interactive” is an immersive and emotional documentary web format that takes our audience on an interactive journey into the Eastern Bloc.

 

A collection of real postcards introduces outstanding stories from throughout the countries of the former Soviet Union about friendship, passion, rebellion and beliefs, offering unique insight into day-to-day life beyond the Iron Curtain and the dynamic behind the collapse.

Press

ARTE Magazin reports on „Farewell Comrades! Interactive“, „Europe’s biggest historical web format draws an extensive picture of the communism and its collapse. (…) Offering interviews, photographs and original documents, life behind the Iron Curtain becomes an interactive experience.“
