Migration between East and West Germany since the fall of the Berlin Wall
Berlin was split into the four sectors, shown above.
Poor standard of living
of the East
The official purpose of the Berlin Wall was to
keep the West and East Germans separated
Concept of the wall was to
prevent the spread of form of government
The wall was designed to be tall and continuous so people could not cross it
ideals and rule
happier and healthier life
of the West
Problems after the unification of Berlin
Difficulties of Migration
Legal, political and technical challenges
Many East Germans rushed to the West all at once
Each half of the city had it's own urban infrastructure
Each half of Berlin had it's own political agenda and demographic make-up
Population spread was uneven, due to the appeal of East Berlin
West Berlin lacked a stable economy, social structure, and infrastructure
Over time West Berlin basically became part of East Berlin, by adopting culture
