As WW2 ends in 1945 Berlin and all of Europe splits into East, controlled by the Soviet Union, and West, controlled by the Western Powers.
You Soviets can have the East of Berlin. The Americans, French and I will have the West.
We need to kick out those Capitalist. Lets cut off all ship and trains going towards East Berlin.
Good thing we have planes.
In 1948 The Soviet Union but a blockade on all land imports and exports around Berlin. The US concurred this with the Berlin Airlift where goods were brought in by plane
From 1945- 1961 about 3.2 million people fled from East Berlin to West Berlin in hopes for freedom and a better life.
Wow they're living the good life on the West Side. Maybe we should move.
On August 13, 1961 Under the command of Nikita Khrushchev the 11 foot Berlin wall was built to keep people from leaving East Berlin.
Now nobody can get in or out!
Because of the horrible economy for people in East Berlin due to WW2, many of them tried to flee into West Germany. Nearly 80 people died trying to cross.
We want to leave, We are so hungry We have no money

In November 1991 The destruction of the Berlin Wall began. Thousands of East Berlin citizens stormed the wall and broke it down, uniting both sides of Berlin.
