17 August 1962. The 18-year-old East Berlin building
worker Peter Fechter is shot whilst trying to escape to West Berlin near
Friedrichstrasse. Neither West nor East German guards intervene and Fechter bleeds to death between the borders. - An hour later East German guards recover the body.

Best Regards, David

Something a little harder for you Kocjo. How many tanks did the French have at Dien Bien Phu during the battle?
