Germany was separated into two different countries, East and West Germany. East Germany became a communist country and West Germany was a democratic country. Even though Berlin is located on the East Germany side, it is still the capital of the country, and was ruled by all of the four major powers of Germany. East Germany didn't want to be ruled by the Soviet Union or the communism. Therefore those people were moving to the West Germany side. East and West Germany built a wall in Berlin, Germany and they named it the Berlin Wall. They started building it in August of 1961, to keep the East Germany side people from leaving the East and coming to the West or for even moving to different countries.
