Berlin Wall

Life around the Berlin Wall.

In this Sept. 11, 2009 picture, a view to the exhibition of the Underworlds museum in Berlin, Germany, is shown. When the East German Government built the Berlin Wall in 1961 to prevent its citizens from leaving, the regime failed to take account for the ingenuity and creativity of those willing to risk anything to escape the communist system. Today, almost 20 years after the wall's demise, Berlin's Cold War-era bunker and tunnel system has become one of the most popular attractions for tourists and locals alike. (AP Photo/Maya Hitij)
