A man joggs in front of a watch tower at the Berlin Wall, the former
East German frontier in Berlin-Treptow August 1, 2001. All that is left
of the barrier built 40 years ago on August 13, 1961 by the Communist
East German government is a grassy gap - a 30-metre (yard) wide "death
strip" surrounding the former capitalist enclave of West Berlin once
used for East German border guard patrols - and a few chipped
remnants.The converted death strip is nowadays an urban utopia, a
traffic-free green zone of nature preserve in and around Germany's
biggest city. Picture taken August 1, 2001.
