Post card from Germany.

A poignant card from yesteryear sent from Germany by Erhard.The Berlin Wall was a barrier that divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany), starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall completely cut off (by land) West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and was completed in 1992.Both stamps on German Legislative bodies has perfect, matching and beautiful cancellation.
