This exhibit tells the story of communities, families and loved ones separated for nearly a quarter of a century, through famous photographs that once graced the covers of newspapers during the Cold War.

Those who lived thorough the event, may remember this famous image of a teenager sitting on the wall with one leg on each side. The photo was snapped by photographer Raymond Depardon.
