East Berlin has always been a nice place except for the constant interference from West Berlin. The open border is often used for espionage, sabotage, currency speculation, smuggling of goods on a large scale and to attract skilled labor to West Berlin.
Today, DDR decided to solve this problem by building a little wall along our border to West Berlin. This is the only way to secure peace in the world.
The Wall will help us in East Berlin to protect ourself from militarism and imperialism. We turn away from the cold war and face international understanding instead.
Now, we will be the city of peace and international friendship!
This fact was made very clear when Walther Ulbricht gave East Berlin the medal “City of Peace” and we all became very happy.
Yes, except the USA of course.
