Event description

Description

David Young is the best-selling author of Stasi Child and Stasi Wolf; two gripping and well researched cold war thrillers inspired by real-life events. David’s illustrated talk is full of photographs from the GDR including exclusive images of an actual escape during mid-1970s, in broad daylight and under automatic gunfire. This story was a major inspiration for David’s first novel. He also shares details of East Germany's famous Crossword Puzzle Murder, which offered the springboard for the his second book.

David talks about life in East Germany, shares a few Stasi surveillance videos and even offers brave volunteers the opportunity to take an East vs West taste test. Which would you prefer?
