Berlin Trip Part 6: Checkpoint Charlie

This is Checkpoint Charlie. From about 1961 to the end of 1989, the only legitimate way to pass back and forth between East and West Berlin was through this portal. The US GI picture lets a person know which way to freedom. There is an iron curtin soldier on the opposite side. It is a wonderful thing that the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie are no longer barriers to the free flow of thought and human beings.
