"Komm sofort, die sperren den Ostsektor ab"

In den Tagen vor dem 17. August spielten sich dramatische Ereignisse im Rathaus Schöneberg ab.

Es gibt Tage, die man in seinem Leben nie mehr vergisst. Dieser 13. August 1961 gehört dazu. Ich war mit Willy Brandt in Nürnberg. Wie fast immer in unserem Lande standen Wahlen vor der Tür. Wir bastelten am
12. August an seiner Rede. Sie war schwierig, denn bei der dramatisch wachsenden Zahl von Menschen, die täglich über die Sektorengrenze kamen, konnte er nicht so tun, als gäbe es keinen Grund zur Beunruhigung.
