The Berlin Wall
After WWII, Germany split into two large Pieces.
and East Germany
No More Germany
WWII was over and the allies all took a piece of Germany.
This same separation went for Berlin as well.
The US and Russia didn't exactly get along in Berlin. East Berliners kept going into West Berlin and Russia didn't like this.
And so the separation of Berlin began. It was started simply because Russia wanted to retain a tight grip on their people.
The Berlin Wall became the literal and figurative concrete separation of the capitalist world, and the communist world.
