  30. The Berlin Wall 1961 The USA invested very heavily in West Berlin to show East Germans the benefits of capitalist West Germany…

  31. The people who left East Germany were often highly-skilled workers. • Khrushchev felt he could not let this continue… • ... on 13 Aug 1961, Soviet forces built a barbed wire fence around West Berlin… • … this soon became a wall, which stood until 1989. • Over 27 years hundreds were killed trying to cross the “wall”

  34. It’s not a very nice solution, but a wall is a hell of a lot better than a war.
