Freedom of travel made it possible for people to spontaneously visit friends and family together. These visits were captured on film, too. Many took advantage of the opportunity to explore the unknown country in the West or the East. Curiosity was not limited to sightseeing. There was also a great interest in people living in the other part of Germany, and in creating a sense of community. Partnerships between towns and cities were established and revived, and associations in both East and West organized meetings. Many longstanding friendships were formed in this period when curiosity was such a potent force.
