  • Description

    Travel restrictions imposed Aug 31 by East Germany authorities on Restrictions imposed Aug 31 by East Germany authorities transit Between West Berlin and the rest of Germany were being enforced Sept 1-2.

    Although most west Berliners who wished to do so were able to enter the city's Eastern sector close checks were made by East German police at the Potsdamer Platz and other crossing points; newspapers and luggage were scrutinised, and Sept 2, questionnaires were introduced, demanding personal details including war service.

    Nevertheless, plans for the Day of Homecoming - an ex-Prisoner of War and refugee gathering scheduled for West Berlin and condemned by the East Germans - continued. Would-be visitors to the re-union, starting Sept 4, who were refused passage from West Germany at frontier check points, are being flown in along the still-open air-lanes, free charge of charge.
