Time for a new Catch of the Week – don’t know when I put up the last one … As you may have noticed the 3rd of October has passed by: It is the official Nationalfeiertag of Germany since 1990, when the former DDR joined the German federation. The former state DDR simply stopped to exist, the citizens of the former DDR became citizens of the new unified Germany, the former Eastern Germany became part of the (later) European Union.

A lot of photographs were taken in those days. And one of them photographers was J├╝rgen RITTER. He has an interesting website called Grenzbilder. And shows pairs of pictures “Then” and “Now”. A lot changed. If you like just poke around a bit. Hope you enjoy it.
