The Berlin Wall solidifies.

The speed with which The Berlin Wall went up caught East and West Berliners by surprise. Firstly they were divided by barbed wire and then this was replaced with stone and bricks. The ability to visit each other became dangerous and life-threatening if they tried to cross the border.

There is no hook in this cartoon as it was actually done when Jeff was working at "The Mercury".
