‘Protecting us from those bad Soviets’

Checkpoint Charlie was the name of the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Germany and West Germany during the Cold War. The Soviet Union erected the Berlin Wall preventing people escaping from East Berlin to West Berlin. Checkpoint Charlie became a symbol of the Cold War, representing the separation of east and west, and a gateway to freedom.

After the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc and the reunification of Germany, the building at Checkpoint Charlie became a tourist attraction and was recently visited by no other than our man Brent R. Reynolds! Brent’s comment: ‘Protecting us from those bad Soviets‘.
