Berlinmuren: Før og nu

Photos-logo Photos | Slide 1 af 22: TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Audrey KAUFFMANN and PACKAGE 'Germany-east-History-20years' FILES - West Berliners crowd in front of the Berlin Wall early 11 November 1989 as they watch East German border guards demolishing a section of the wall in order to open a new crossing point between East and West Berlin, near the Potsdamer Square. Two days before, Gunter Schabowski, the East Berlin Communist party boss, declared that starting from midnight, East Germans would be free to leave the country, without permission, at any point along the border, including the crossing-points through the Wall in Berlin. The Berlin concrete wall was built by the East German government in August 1961 to seal off East Berlin from the part of the city occupied by the three main Western powers to prevent mass illegal immigration to the West. According to the 'August 13 Association' which specialises in the history of the Berlin Wall, at least 938 people - 255 in Berlin alone - died, shot by East German border guards, attempting to flee to West Berlin or West Germany.

Berlinmuren 1961 - 1989

Berlinmuren, der i næsten 30 år delte Øst- og Vesttyskland, faldt den 9. november 1989, da Østtysklands regering åbnede alle grænseovergangene. Her er et kig på et udvalg af billeder, der viser den forandring, visse områder i den tyske hovedstad undergik efter Murens fald.
