Meanwhile in Magdeburg, someone is listening to the latest Spybrary Spy podcast episode…. The Spybrary Spy Podcast with Shane Whaley..have you tuned in yet?
Flew to Germany last year from Los Angeles on Lufthansa, and the Video Entertainment included three 90 minute TV mini-movies of a program called Hoenigfrauen. It was amazing!
It’s set in about 1986 and about 2 young sisters from the DDR that convince their parents to let them vacation in Hungary and the resulting espionage and escape activities they get involved in. Great female characters and depiction of family life in DDR. The films depicts some of the paranoia and surveillance that must have taken place.
Suffice it to say, I was enthralled for the entire duration of all three episodes.
Hope others can enjoy it too! Would be interesting to read their comments.
