On this day in 1961, a VW Beetle from East Berlin ploughed into coils of barbed wire at Ackerstrasse - at the time the only fortification between East and West Berlin - and the driver successfully escaped into the West. On the same day, construction of a much more formidable barrier - the Berlin Wall - began. See where (at plaque B340) and discover more about the hundreds of escapes and lives lost across the Berlin Wall at the Berlin Wall Memorial, starting at Nordbahnhof, where you can see surviving fragments of the wall, how it was constructed and patrolled, and the impact it had on Berliners for almost three decades.
