    Sounds like life in a devout colony of pilgrims.

    Agreed. My wife and I were just talking last night about how most of our students in college don't remember the Berlin Wall or the threat of the Communist Block. Something like this makes those events more real.

    Sorry to burst you bubble, but, that professor just proved that he knew absolutely nothing about live in East Germany.
    Only wearing approved clothing? You are aware that East Berlin had a fairly big Punk culture?

    I wonder if they forced them to recite the Pledge?

    Considering this was a reenactment of something happening in GERMANY, I doubt the pledge was involved Rav.

    I should have said a pledge...I guess you didn't understand my sarcasm.

    And they did have to recite a pledge (or at least write it)

    What do you think he should have done instead?

    Force a few kids to grow spiked mohawks and walk around in studded leather halter tops?
