Berlin Alexanderplatz. The area changed of course as where the people stood there are buildings with various shops surrounding a still pretty large empty space.
It looks like this crowd now agrees with this old lady))) https://oldpics.net/berlin-wall-escape-september-1961/
It’s not tens of thousands Stasi agents with 12 protestors?
Imagine getting to the middle of that crowd and having to pee…
I still laugh at the fact that the Berlin wall fell because some party beuracrat didn’t attend a meeting.
I estimate maybe 100k-200k people in the photo. Back then it was claimed that up to 500,000 people attended.
All those people’s turned out just to see The Hoff belt out a few tunes
Germans united atop the Berlin Wall just five days after the enormous demonstration at East Berlin’s Alexanderplatz.
At least they had a chance but North Koreans? Nope.
