13 August 2011 will mark the building of the Berlin Wall, which took place 50 years ago.

The Federation Foundation has therefore produced an exhibition in cooperation with the BILD and THE WORLD newspapers.

20 large-format posters tell the history of both the inner-German border and the Berlin Wall. The exhibition includes impressive photos and documents from the archives of the two newspapers, some of which have never been shown before. The authors, Sven-Felix Keller Hoff and Dr. Ralf-Georg Reuth, describe the communist border regime and its victims, the attitude of the Western powers to the Wall, escapes and escape assistance, daily life along the German border and in the divided city of Berlin as well as the happy ending of the division with the peaceful revolution of 1989.
