A Tale of Two Islands
Commission for Condé Nast Traveler (USA)
Twenty-five years after the fall of the Wall, vestiges of Germany’s divided past remain. Two of the most potent-and unexpected-symbols are also the country’s most beloved islands: Sylt, the former playground of West Germany’s elite, and Rügen, the vacation spot of East Germany’s partyofficials. Anna Winger goes time-traveling.
