Parliament, will tell of his travels (and his recent book) on the Iron Curtain
Trail
. For almost half a century, Europe was divided into East and
West by the "Iron Curtain" — the Iron Curtain Trail invites people to

borders of 20 states in Europe — 14 of them are now member states of the
European Union (for more info, see this article on the Iron Curtain Trail in the NY
Times
)."
