Berlin was once divided into East and West Berlin by a massive concrete wall, the infamous Berlin Wall, that created a 155-km-long strip of no mans land. This so called “death strip” on the East German side of the wall was off-limits to people. It was raked with sand and gravel to show footprints, lit with floodlights at night, and guarded by vicious dogs and patrolling soldiers ready to shoot down escapees on sight. While the Berlin Wall succeeded in preventing its human citizens from escaping the communist East Germany, the rabbits had free reign, burrowing under the wall and hopping off from East to West. Berliners on both sides of the wall looked on the rabbits fondly because they reminded them of the freedom of movement they once had.
