[edit] Information

The Berlin Wall – Escape to Freedom Fascinating and revealing documentary that chronicles the amazing stories of the courageous East Germans who dared to cross the eponymous landmark from Soviet-controlled repression, to the freedom that awaited them in West Berlin.

A tyrannical regime builds a monstrous concrete slab that severs a city - the Berlin Wall. On the Western side, it's a hated symbol of a bitter Cold War, on the East, a deadly blockade to freedom. The Berlin Wall: Escape To Freedom reveals the stories of courageous East Germans who dared to challenge the authorities and the Berlin Wall in their bid for freedom. From tunnelling under the Wall, to smuggling refugees in a car's trunk, to flights over the Wall, uncover the details of sensational escape stories. It takes us into the heart of the Death Strip - a lethal zone next to a Wall filled with barbed wire, mines, attack dogs, tank traps, and armed guards - and shows us how authorities learned from each escape to make the Wall stronger and harder to beat. Finally, the Wall that was strengthened over 28 years was breached in one unbelievable night, while signs of the divisions of generations past still lingers on today.
