Modern Marvels : The Berlin Wall 480P Part 1 / 3 Playlist link: www.youtube.com Part 1: youtu.be Part 2: youtu.be Part 3: youtu.be The Berlin Wall was placed in Berlin, Germany at the end of World War II. It was put there to separate East Germany from West Germany. West Germany had a Democratic government with two parties (similar to our Democrats and Republicans). The East German side had only one political party, called the Communist party, in which the people had no voice. The Berlin Wall was put up in August of 1961. It was made with concrete, barbed wire, plasterboard walls and many other things. During the years 1953 to 1989, people on the Eastern side who lived in houses near the wall spent their nights digging tunnels under the wall from their basements trying to escape to freedom in the West. They also climbed over the wall, sometimes during the day. When the Eastern side found this out, they put guards on the wall, and if they saw an escapee, that person would be shot. Friends and even family were separated. People would peer over the wall to see their friends. Even soldiers would cross over the wall.
The Battle of Berlin, designated the Berlin Strategic Offensive Operation by the Soviet Union, was the final major offensive of the European Theatre of World War II. Starting on 16 April 1945, the Red Army breached the German front as a result of the Vistula–Oder Offensive and advanced westward as much as 40 kilometres a day through East Prussia, Lower Silesia, East Pomerania, and Upper Silesia, temporarily halting on a line 60 kilometres east of Berlin along the Oder River. When the offensive resumed, two Soviet army groups attacked Berlin from the east and south, while a third overran German forces positioned north of Berlin. The Battle in Berlin lasted from 20 April 1945 until the morning of 2 May. Before the battle was over, German Führer Adolf Hitler and a number of his followers committed suicide. The city’s defenders finally surrendered on 2 May. However, fighting continued to the north-west, west and south-west of the city until the end of the war in Europe on 8 May as German units fought westward so that they could surrender to the Western Allies rather than to the Soviets.
