I grew up in the shadow of the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. I literally had an image in my mind of an iron wall – dark, tall and imposing. What lay beyond was only darkness. I don’t think my U.S. raised friends understood my tears of joy when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Nor did they realize the significance of my first trip to Prague and Budapest.
