“On August 13, 1961, the German Democratic Republic split Berlin in two with a 100-mile long wall, isolating the three Western zones from the surrounding Brandenburg Land, in order to stop the increasing flow of refugees leaving East Berlin and the GDR.  The Archives of the Land of Berlin and the Berlin Story publishing company are bringing out this book of photos to bear witness to a particular history of Berlin and to one of the most awful of human constructions, which nevertheless left its imprint on the divided city for 28 years, from 1961 to 1989.”
