The lengths people went to escape East Germany

The lengths people went to escape East Germany

(1:56) Swim for your life! 3 men and 1 woman swam the river Spree that divides Berlin, to escape the Socialist/Communist government of East Germany. The water belonged to the GDR (East Germany) but by the late 1980s, GDR soldiers would not shoot into into the grounds of West Berlin. At the time, West Berlin did not belong to West Germany; it was under direct Allied control.
