Part 3

The NBI took into account the global view and thus imparted to readers in the GDR the feeling of being part of this. Many reports covered Cuba’s socialist development or the suffering and the dreams of the people in the so-called “backyard of the USA”. Extraordinary are the images of a four-part travel report through Northern Vietnam and a visit to Iraq after the end of the First Gulf War (Iran-Iraq War) 1988.
