Berlin is the capital of Germany. On August 13th, 1961 the Berlin Wall was put up. This separated East and West Germany and would continue to separate them until October 3rd, 1990. It was a product of the massive amount of tension between East and West Germany and would lead to a very high poverty level within East Germany. This would be because East Germans were not allowed to traverse the wall to West Germany, and this cut off a lot of job opportunities.
