Product description
Four years after the building of the Berlin Wall, a group of young British men and women crossed through the Iron Curtain. Their mission was to help rebuild a war bombed hospital in Dresden, East Germany. The project was organised by a man with a vision, the then Provost of Coventry Cathedral. In this account of a unique event in Cold War history, some of those who took part recall their experiences and reveal how they were unwittingly caught up in a secret political strategy aimed at maintaining peace in Europe.
