In This Week in History, sponsored by the Upcountry History Museum:

On this day in 1961, East German soldiers begin laying down barbed wire and bricks as a barrier between soviet-controlled East Berlin and the democratic western section of the city.

Residents woke up separated from family and friends, and would not be reunited until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Visit the Upcountry History Museum and explore the permanent exhibitions on the Upstate.
