Here we would like to share some historic photos of Berlin between the 1940s and 1990s with you. Almost all of these photos have been given to us by the photographers – often members of the US military – who were stationed in Berlin to share with the public. They depict various parts of West Berlin in the 1960s, including US facilities, the Berlin wall, and general scenes of life in Berlin. Some also show scenes in East Berlin.
If you believe that you hold the rights to one of these photos, or if you are depicted in one of these photos and wish to have it removed, please contact us. If you have more information you would like to share, especially about the locations, people or dates of the photos, we would like to hear from you.
More than 10,316 days since the Fall of the Berlin Wall
The Berlin Wall has now been down for more than 10316 days – longer than it stood. This picture was provided to us by Michael Dunn, a participant in our Welcome Home Program, who was just a young GI stationed in Berlin.
West Berlin in the 1960s
Most of these pictures were provided to us by Phillip Bargoil, a US soldier posted in Berlin in the 1960s, who took them himself and provided them to us to make publicly available. They have been scanned from prints.
