The first time [Mikhail S. Gorbachev and I] met in Moscow on April 29, 1990 ... I had brought a piece of the Berlin Wall … as gratitude for his words, “He who comes too late gets punished by life.” And then he said something that I will never forget: “Didn’t we all come too late?” Gorbachev is for me a hero from a Greek tragedy. He wanted to have a humanized form of socialism, and got a shabby capitalism, pretty much the shabbiest. He wanted a democratized Soviet Union, and got its collapse. And yet he remains one of the great saviors of the second half of the 20th century.

East Germany decided to upgrade the fortifications in the late 1960s to establish a "modern frontier" that would be far more difficult to cross. Barbed-wire fences were replaced with harder-to-climb expanded metal barriers; directional anti-personnel mines and anti-vehicle ditches blocked the movement of people and vehicles; tripwires and electric signals helped guards to detect escapees; all-weather patrol roads enabled rapid access to any point along the border; and wooden guard towers were replaced with prefabricated concrete towers and observation bunkers.

DDR stands for Deutsch Demokratishe Republik. Immediately after World War Two and until the collapse of the Soviet Union and reunification of East and West Germany, what used to be East Germany was known as the Deutsch Demokratishe Republik (DDR). The East German government employed armed guards with highly trained dogs to patrol the Berlin Wall and the general border and checkpoints along the East and West border crossings. The breeders of the DDR where some of the strictest breeders, the world has ever known.

Old East German bloodlines, with proper care and bonding, these dogs will lay their lives down if necessary. These dogs have been bred for intelligence, performance and workability and health.
