1961 - On the day the wall started to go up, I got on the first
flight from London to Berlin. On the plane coincidentally - and
coincidence plays a large part in a photojournalist's life - was
reporter Donald Edgar, who spoke perfect German. We managed to get
distraught West German mayor Willy Brandt to ride with him to see
firsthand the East German tanks and troops circling the city, while
workmen put up barbed wire barricades and building the wall that
came to symbolize the Cold War.
