  • Problems in West Berlin
    • Berlin was still divided in the 60's
    • The USSR controlled the east and the USA promised freedom in the west
    • In 1961 Krushchev closed the boarder and ordered construction of a wall
    • Many of those leaving were skilled and qualified workers
    • When the wall was first built Russians viewed it as successful propaganda
      • However as time went on it became a symbol of all that was bad about soviet rule
    • This wall symbolised the divided world
    • It was a concrete symbol of ideological division between "free world" and "communist world"
