In the black and white photo people in West Berlin look at an early version of the Berlin Wall in front of the church at the same location sometime in 1961 or 1962.

The Wall, built by the communist authorities of East Berlin, divided the city between 1961 and 1989 and became the iconic symbol on the Cold War. East Germany was under communist and Soviet control from its founding as the German Democratic Republic (DDR) in 1949 and ceased to exist following German reunification in 1990.
