[Swim For Your Life – Escaping East Germany Before The Berlin Wall Came Down]
Berlin near the Reichstag. The boarder under constant observation, but here is proof of an escape. By coincidence a foreign tourist filmed these scenes a short time ago. At first the four GDR refugees – 3 men and 1 woman – weren’t noticed as they climbed over rooves and fences until they got to the east bank of the river. But the entire breadth of the river belongs to East Berlin. On the west side stood a large group of tourists watching the flight.
A speed boat arrives carrying armed border guards.
This is Eastern territory! Get over there! Over there! There’s nothing more you can do!
The 3 young men have made it to the Western side. Only the woman lacked the strength to pull herself out of the water. Later she told us:
They couldn’t just shoot because they could have shot into something else. He was screaming at me to come out. But I knew that if I got into the boat then it was all over. So I stayed waited in the water. Then someone took my hand and said: “They can’t shoot you anyway you’re in the West!” and pulled me out. Then we got away from the edge. Because that bit belongs to the East.
It’s all okay! How did you know they wouldn’t shoot? We thought they’d shoot at us! We’ve done it!!!
