The young Justinian Jampol was collecting in his free time remains of Cold War East Germany. He took them also out of garbage cans. With the help of his family, he was able to open The Wende Museum in Culver City. People from all over the world were also sending him collectibles from the era he was looking for.
If you want to visit this museum, please call them up to make the required arrangements as the museum is only opened once a month.

Thanks for the great private tour we have enjoyed with former curator, Dr. Silke Hilger, on October 26, 2007.
