  • Description

    IN MAY THE BORDER BETWEEN WEST GERMANY AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA WILL BE OPENED FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE IT WAS CLOSED IN 1945. IT WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT EVENT, THE FIRST TIME THAT THE BORDER BETWEEN A WARSAW PACT COUNTRY AND A MEMBER OF NATO HAS BEEN LIFTED FOR REGULAR TOURIST PURPOSES.

    PREPARATIONS ARE ALREADY BEING MADE. UNDER THE EYE OF BORDER GUARDS, NEW SIGNS ARE BEING PUT UP, CUSTOMS AND BORDER OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN MEETING TO DISCUSS PRACTICAL DIFFICULTIES, AND SURVEYORS ARE MEASURING AND SURVEYING THE LAND BEFORE BUILDING A NEW ROAD AND BRIDGE TO TAKE THE TRAFFIC.

    IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE NEW MOVE WILL BRING A CONSIDERABLE FLOW OF TOURIST TRAFFIC FROM SOUTH GERMANY AND ESTABLISH A NEW LINK BETWEEN PRAGUE AND NUREMBURG.
