Your welcome / Gerne @Bea94
Today 60 years ago 13.08.1961 the GDR ( DDR in German ) started building “the wall” ( die Mauer ). The link is to the Berlin war memorial ( Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer ).
My father went in 1962 with a friend to Berlin ( coming from the west ), because he wanted to see with his own eyes that they - the GDR - are really going to do this. Here’s a picture from him back then and in 2017 once the wall was long gone at almost the same spot:
