70 years?  1990 doesn't seem that long ago.

For those who are not up on German history, prior to German
reunification the German Democratic Republic was one of the most heavily
surveilled nations on the planet.  Watch "Das Leben der Anderen"
sometime (released in the US as "The Lives of Others"; not sure about
how it's named in other foreign releases).

The movie is definitely worth watching.
