On this day in 1966 - and on his birthday - a man known as Peter S. escaped into West Berlin over the Berlin Wall, leaving his wallet behind in the process. See where (at plaque A326) and discover more about the hundreds of escapes and lives lost across the Berlin Wall at the Berlin Wall Memorial, starting at Nordbahnhof, where you can see surviving fragments of the wall, how it was constructed and patrolled, and the impact it had on Berliners for almost three decades.
