Why was the Berlin Wall put up? How was life in a divided Berlin? What was The Cold War? This tour will answer these questions and much more...
A Walk Through History
Berlin was the frontline of The Cold War.
Following the allied victory in 1945, Germany was divided into four parts controlled by the victorious Allied forces: France, Britain, The USA and USSR. Within the Russian zone, Berlin itself was divided, but the relationship between Russia and the Western powers deteriorated to such an extent that by 1949 the capital had been divided into East and West with the famous Berlin Wall erected, physically dividing the two.
This tour will dig deeper into the peculiar stalemate between East and West Germany. What were the practicalities managing West Berlin, lying as it did within East Germany? What happened to the Berlin metro when it passed from West to East Berlin territory? What happened to the 5,000 people who tried to cross the Berlin Wall from East to West? Who were the Stasi and how did they control and observe the population?
These are just some of the questions which will be asked and answered in this unique tour of Soviet Berlin.
