  • Description

    Delegates to a Christian Democratic Union conference at Fulda, West Germany, were filmed by VISNEWS near the East-West border early June 20.

    Members of the former East German Christian Democrat Party, the delegates stood in silence with their leader, West German Minister for Home Affairs, Ernst Lemmer, watching East German police re-plough the 12 yards wide 'no man's' strip that runs the length of the dividing line between the two Germanies
    In the evening huge bonfires blazed near the border as those on the West German side communicated their sympathy and good wishes to their brethren on the other side of the 'death' strip.

    Ernst Lemmer was leader of the East Germany CDU before he fled the Communist-held country.
