MURO DI BERLINO: RICERCA IN INGLESE
COME ERA DIVISA BERLINO
This barrier, the Berlin Wall, was first erected on the night of Aug. 12-13, 1961, as the result of a decree passed on August 12 by the East German Volkskammer ("Peoples' Chamber"). The original wall, built of barbed wire and cinder blocks, was subsequently replaced by a series of concrete walls (up to 15 feet [5 m] high) that were topped with barbed wire and guarded with watchtowers, gun emplacements, and mines. By the 19! 80s this system of walls, electrified fences, and fortifications extended 28 miles (45 km) through Berlin, dividing the two parts of the city, and extended a further 75 miles (120 km) around West Berlin, separating it from the rest of East Germany.
QUANDO FU ABBATTUTO IL MURO DI BERLINO
The Berlin Wall came to symbolize the Cold War's division of East from West Germany and of eastern from Western Europe. About 5,000 East Germans managed to cross the Berlin Wall (by various means) and reach West Berlin safely, while another 5,000 were captured by East German authorities in the attempt and 191 more were killed during the actual crossing of the wall.
