Berlin Wall, 1962

Stark footage from the Berlin Wall. A light flashes from the roof of an ugly border post framed by barbed war. East German guards carry the body of a teenager they shot down while he tried to cross the border. A guard looks through binoculars. As a Russian bus speeds by, Berliners throw rocks. A large bell, symbolizing freedom, rings. American troops march in formation and Gen. Lucius Clay salutes.
