Abandoned GDR era flat in Leipzig

When the Berlin Wall was about to fall, a lot of people
left their homes running away from the GDR government.
This year an architect found a flat in Leipzig, left completely intact.
It appears to have been abandoned in a hurry towards the end of 1989.

The shelves were stacked with East German brands such as ‘Vita’ cola,
‘Marella’ margarine, ‘Juwel’ cigarettes and ‘Kristall’ vodka.
A true museum from that time.

* Quando o muro de Berlin estava prestes a cair, várias pessoas
deixaram suas casas fugindo do regime da RDA.
Esse ano um arquiteto encontrou um apartamento em Leipzig
deixado completamente intacto.
Parece ter sido abandonado
às pressas
no final de 1989. As estantes estavam cheias de produtos da Alemanha Oriental:
"Vita" cola, margarina "Marella", cigarros "Juwel" e vodka "Kristall".
Um verdadeiro museu da época.
