About this Book
After the Second World War, Germany was split into two separate entities.
East Germany fell to the Russians, and a Communist regime was established under the
auspices of the Soviet Union. The Communist government didn't allow its citizens to cross the border into West Germany, which was a democratic nation. Eventually, the Berlin Wall was built to serve as a deterrent. It divided Berlin, the capital city of Germany, and created two cities with opposing worldviews. East Germany was notorious for the harsh scrutiny that every citizen was subjected to. Ruthless Stazhi agents patrolled the streets. They followed the citizens, listened in on their conversations, and arrested them at will. The Berlin Wall takes us back in time to that frightening era. We meet several Yidden living in East Germany. They remain staunch in their Emunah, despite the challenges. They work together to strengthen Yiddishkeit, under the noses of the Communist leaders. Powerful, brilliant Stazhi agents are assigned to their case and they attempt to disrupt the courageous plans... Let's set out on a journey to the dark alleyways and deserted rooftops in East Germany. The suspense and drama will draw you into the fascinating story that takes place on both sides of The Berlin Wall.
