The story of an East German soldier who helped a young boy cross the newly erected ‘Berlin Wall’ in August, 1961 really moved the heart of many people for decades.

The look of apprehension on the serviceman’s face was well founded; it was said that he was seen by his superior officer, who immediately detached the soldier from his unit.
Regarding the ultimate fate of the soldier, sources claims that he was sacked and later executed for disobeying orders.
On the night between the 12th and the 13th of August 1961, the police and units of the East German army began to close the border and, by Sunday morning, the border with West Berlin was closed.
The barrier was built inside East Berlin or East German territory to ensure that it did not encroach on West Berlin at any point
