For 28 years the Wall divided Berlin, tearing friends and families apart. The two comic authors Susanne Buddenberg and Thomas Henseler interviewed contemporary witnesses and recorded their experiences. Five true stories tell of a time that was not so long ago, but is hardly imaginable today: A young woman tries to leave the GDR with a false ID. A refugee is shot at the border without rescue workers being able to help him. A whole family is hiding in a GDR government building near the wall, hoping to escape to the West from here. A young man secretly photographs the border fortifications and falls into the clutches of the state security. An East Berlin student explores West Berlin at night and celebrates the party of his life.
BERLIN - Geteilte Stadt also takes you to the original locations of the stories: you can follow the traces of the dramatic events at the Friedrichstrasse train station, in Bernauer Strasse, Wilhelmstrasse, at the Brandenburg Gate and at the former border crossing on Bornholmer Strasse.
