So also the individual stories of people in the cold war remain hidden, the background of the construction of the wall – two hostile systems in a city partly in a street.

Wall was not just a prisoner exchange at Glienicke bridge or escape in the balloon, but also the everyday life of the cold war in the city of Berlin: the cold war attracted, border controls became tighter propaganda more aggressive, the ways of the East West encounters more difficult. Everyday constraints played often in the everyday of people in the East a greater role as the missing travel opportunities. In the West, people desperate, that you could not see the members of the family in the other part of the city. In the 1970s, a “second wall’ was in their midst: the call of the GDR held many people to travel in the East, in the GDR, it was forbidden to maintain contacts with”Western people”more and more citizens. The Berlin agency “Berlin compact” remind in their guided tours on the fate of the people of the divided city, beyond Kennedy, James Bond and the spectacular wall victims. The leadership can imagine and walk the wall which meant the Berliners. Contact: Stefan Kniestedt c/o Berlin compact large Berry Street 49 10965 Berlin Tel 030 7853577 fax 030 78990187
