"The Glienicke Checkpoint, circa spring 1955. The bus is carrying a group of military personnel to visit Frederick the Great's Potsdam palace, Sans Souci. It was the first ever such visit, signaling a temporary thaw in the Cold War. In the distance are two apparently besmocked female figures, apparently teachers at the Kinderwochenheim." -- George Zonoff
