Thank you for visiting my sites. You can also add my guestbook.
Hello you lucky people from Germany,
Joerg (a good friend of mine and in his mind, an Irish himself) enabled me to add some lines to this guestbook.
I am from Dublin (REPUBLIC of IRELAND) living in Belfast (THE NORTH OF IRELAND).
The Brits have occupied my country since 1169 a. d., and still six counties of a construction known to the world as Northern Ireland.
Please, folks, come to the North, to Belfast and Derry.
Come and see the Wall there; it is seven meters high and a wall in the mind and head of the people divided into Loyalists and us, the Republican Community, and no political one.
You, the German people, were succesfully declining the Berlin Wall by the power of the people living on both sides of the wall.
Be happy fate offered you a historical chance to planate a perverted structure like The Wall.
I pray to the Lord that one day my people will also be as strong enough as you once were to dictate your fate by yourselves, and not by a foreign government and army as having occured so in my country for more than 800 years.
Please, believe me, and I am telling no lies that I had tears in my eyes watching you overcoming the Berlin Wall, and when adults from the East and from the West that have never met before were sincerely embracing.
A Hundred Thousand Thank You's for showing us, this, in principal, works if only we want.

The Wall represents one of the grossest injustices ever seen in modern
times.SHAME on those who conceived it,built it,and who manned it.May those
responsible for all who suffered and died because of it never have a moment's

I was wondering why the Berlin Wall was put up. Was it because of the jews?
I would really like to thank this site for all facts I used for my school work!
It's the best fact site on internet about the Berlin Wall that I've been
abled to find. Thank you very much !

I was stationed in Berlin with the U.S. Army from 1989-1991. Although I didn't pick the timing, it couldn't have been more perfect.
I went back last April '05 for the 60th Anniversary of the end of WWII.
I was glad to see the changes and progress and wish my friends in Germany the best!

I visited the DDR in'63 and'68 while I was playing with the Chris Barber Jazz Band.I remember it was like a time warp.
A taxi I travelled in still had ''Reichmarks''on the meter.The people were great and the audiences at the Berlin Friedrichstaatpalast
where we played and recorded really made us welcome.On the second visit I had a whole load of ladies
tights in my case which the Grepo's didn't open(Thankfully).
These were just one item that was unobtainable'Back in the west of the City I would often look across the barrier of the wall at Friedrichstrasse and try to understand a city and a country divided.
Very difficult for a London boy.Your website brings back lots of memories;Thank's.Stu

Beautiful site. Anyone who has ever visited Checkpoint Charlie or the remains
of the wall would understand this.
Keep up the good work!

I was an au pair in Germany in -61 and felt that "my" family feared an outbreake of 3. World war -
Before the 13. of August - 61 some joker told me that DDR stood for "Der Dumme Rest" - bad joke yes -- ?
Thank you so much for interesting pages.

I served in Berlin 1985-87. I loved the city, people, nightlife and culture.Any
info on the new name for the district of Kladow? I will be returning to the city
in the next two years to view the changes since my last visit.

I went to Berlin with my school last May and I think it's and amazing city, with
an interesting background,and it's a shame not many people know how much people
suffered in Germany after the war! This site is really cool site, with loads of
cool information, but nothing can beat actually going there! Thanx!

Excellent Site - but would you please add to your links the Alliierten Museum, in Clay Allee, (Curator: Dr Helmut Trotnow)- an good collection of Cold War material realting to Berlin - see http://www.alliiertenmuseum.de/
Also the BRIXMIS website - see
www.brixmis.co.uk - BRIXMIS was the British Commander in Chief's Mission to the Soviet Foreces in Germany - set up by Anglo-Russian agreement in 1947, disbanded in 1991,
maintained "diplomatic" relations with the Soviet forces during that period, based in Berlin and Potsdam, and had "unhindered" access to the DDR for purposes of monitoriung military activity -
see Tony Geraghty's book "Beyond the Front Line".
There were smaller US and French Missions, and they have their own websites. There were also three Soviet missions to each of the Allied Zones of Occupation.

I saw the wall in Aug '83. I was w/Air Cav Trp on a Reforger exercise. At the
time I didn't think it would ever come down. So glad I was wrong!!

I just spoke with my Dad who was at Checkpoint Charlie, who said he spoke with
you. Thanks for all of your efforts on this matter. It took work from patriots
like my Dad to eventually "tear down the wall."

As one of the "war babies" of June, 1945--born to a war-bride and U.S.
Sailor--I'm interested in how Americans viewed World War II. In particular, I'd
like to see Carl McDaniel's black-and-white exhibit, "Berlin 1945: A Private
View." We have several locations here in Chicago, IL (USA) where the exhibit
would fit quite well.It's certainly a credit to the Allied Museum to feature
those pix in an exhibit. Thank you for your role in recounting an important

My mother was born in Berlin in 1927. She came to the USA after the war and
became an American citizen. I saw the wall for the first time in 1975. I was
also in Berlin on Nov.5, 1989 and I missed being there for the fall of the wall
by only 4 days. My mother died in 1985. I wish she could have seen the wall come
down. I was born in New York and am very proud to be an American, because
America stood behind Berlin to make sure freedom would stay there.

This is a great informative website about the Wall, i fully understand what the
Germans went through for 28 years since the Palestinians are going through the
same thing today with a bigger and even longer wall!!! Keep up the good work and
i hopeboth Germans and Palestinians could work together someday to bring down

Greetings ~ Thnks for the lovely wab site. I visited Checkpoint Charlie while
living in Berlin for the year of 1999. It was a place I will never forget and
filled with more than anyone can tell another. Impossible to tell of the
feelings evoked while there. I just tell those who ask that they must make the
journey themselves to discover it. ~ As well as the whole of my favorite
favorite city in the world... BERLIN! I hear that GOA as well as The Kit Kat
Klub have been closed. What a pity. Anyways keep up the good work.

cool site. Very informative!
Here is a question for you all... My 14 year old
daughter was looking at an old map of East/west Germany. She knew that there
was an East/West Berlin divided by "the Wall". What she didn't realize was that
Berlin was not on the border of East/West Germany (me either).
So, How did
people travel from W. Germany to W. Berlin? Were people able to have free
travel between Checkpoint Alpha and Bravo? Was there only 1 road between W.
Germany and W. Berlin? Where could I get clerification on this travel process
Thursday, May 05, 2005
Like your site,I was station in Frankfurt/ 49 to 52,would have liked to went to Berlin,,,

Another daughter of a German woman and an American soldier, 1959. Now my son

My Dad saw it many times, but there wasn't much to put on a poster board until I
found your website!
Thursday, April 21, 2005
