German Democratic Republic
A German Farmhouse
GNU Free Documentation LicenseA German Farmhouse

Leamas is taken to a farmhouse deep within East Germany, officially known as the German Democratic Republic. The building is described as a farmhouse made up to look like a hunting lodge, but it is in a state of disuse. Half-timbered with whitewashed bricks and set in an isolated position in a forest, perhaps it looked a little like this German farmhouse before a major renovation.

The drama then shifts to Görlitz in the far east of Germany, near the Polish border.



Meanwhile Liz Gold has been invited to a conference, as Secretary of the Bayswater Branch of the British Communist Party, in Leipzig.
