East and West Berlin Soldiers Face Each Other

Original caption: 10/16/1961-Berlin, Germany-U.S. Army officer (l) and an East German officer face each other across the line dividing East and West Berlin at the Freidrichstrasse checkpoint here Oct 16. American MPs and East German "People's Police" stationed at the Freidrichstrasse break in the Iron Curtain perform an endless cold war ballet as formalized as a flamenco dance and only slightly less violent. They advance and retreat on either side of a "deadline"-a six-inch-wide white line painted across Freidrichstrasse along what is supposed to be the precise border betweeen East and West Berlin.
