Here’s a bit of history! A rare, pre-worn, black T-Shirt, size MEDIUM that has a graphic on the front with parts of the flag from the USSR (Russia) Germany, Great Britain and the United States of America. And the words: BERLIN CHECKPOINT CHARLIE. The T-Shirt measures just over 20 inches across the chest measured under the arms and from the back of the neck band to the bottom hem is 28 inches. A European Screen Stars neck tag from fruit of the loom that has several languages on it. 100% cotton. NOTE: Would clean this T-Shirt with care—inside out if washed and delicate.
And just so you know...
Checkpoint Charlie (or "Checkpoint C") was the name given by the Western Allies to the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War.
GDR leader Walter Ulbricht agitated and maneuvered to get the Soviet Union's permission for the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961 to stop Eastern Bloc emigration westward through the Soviet border system, preventing escape across the city sector border from East Berlin to West Berlin. Checkpoint Charlie became a symbol of the Cold War, representing the separation of East and West. Soviet and American tanks briefly faced each other at the location during the Berlin Crisis of 1961.
After the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc and the reunification of Germany, the building at Checkpoint Charlie became a tourist attraction. It is now located in the Allied Museum in the Dahlem neighborhood of Berlin.
