Border Regiment 44

The part of the Berlin Wall around Glienicke Bridge was the most difficult one for the GDR-border troops to surveil.

What you can admire nowadays as a wonderful landscape and UNESCO-site right next to the Havel-River, was a border area where people were shot at only because they wanted to leave the country to be free – between August 13th 1961 and autumn 1989. At least 140 men and women died at the 100 miles long Berlin Wall, every one one too much. The inhuman border system of concrete walls, fences, partly electrified, and watchtowers is all gone, but there are some traces left I would like to show you on our tour back to the times when Germany was divided into two countries and families and friends were separated.
