How was the Berlin Wall officially called in the German Democratic Republic?
Anti-fascist Protection Rampart
Atomic Safety Wall
Wall of Peace
Counterintelligence Fortified Zone
The name implied that West Germany had not been fully de-Nazified. Before the Wall's erection, 3.5 million East Germans defected from the GDR. Between 1961 and 1989, the wall prevented almost all such emigration.
