Yesterday I heard Shirley Williams describing a visit to Germany in May 1948. ( 1948, just "listened again..."). She was saying that the only usable currency was cigarettes, that she saw girls trading sex for chocolate and a train-load of Czechs being handed back to "the East". Was this still happening in 1948 ?? I'd have thought that 3 years after the war ended life would have been rough but not "chocolate for sex" rough ?
