Berlin Wall 10 Year Memorial

Berlin Germany Tourist Information and Travel Guide

The Berlin Wall divided families, friends and nations for more than a quarter of a century.  It was a focal point for cold-war tension, that could have easily ended in nuclear confrontation.

The photographs in this portion of our website were taken in August of 1971, around the 10th anniversary of the Wall.  The memorial was to honor the victims of the wall.
