What was the iron curtain

What was the Iron Curtain?

The Iron Curtain was the symbolic boundary dividing Europe into two separate parts. This boundary started from the end of World War II in 1945 and lasted until the end of The Cold War in 1991.

The term “The Iron Curtain” was first used by Nazi Germany's Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels.


Iron curtain

People in Eastern Europe didn't like the Iron Curtain because it ignored other important things that were going on.

On the East side of the Iron Curtain were the countries that were connected to the Soviet Union.

  • The other side of the Iron Curtain, states developed their own economic and military alliances.


West side vs east side

West Side Vs East Side

Since the wall divided the west from the east, many families were separated and had no way of reaching their loved ones.

The west side was the free side. The east side however, was not. They were controlled by the Soviet Union.

People often tried to escape and go to the west side. If they got caught they died.
