ABSTRACT
Checkpoint Charlie, a gap in the Berlin Wall, is the best-known crossing between the communist and noncommunist worlds. On the Western side, tourists, anticommunist demonstrators and allied guards watch heavily armed East German sentinels watchingthem. In 1987, many more tourists will be here to celebrate the divided city's 750th anniversary. Still, East and West Germany do not see eye to eye about what Checkpoint Charlie actually is.
