A string of streets in suburban Berlin tells the story of the stark differences in economic and political life which have developed between the eastern and western sectors of Germany after 40 years of separation. A walk along any of these streets which, for nearly 40 years, were divided by the Berlin Wall and the yawning gap between the economic prosperity of what was once West Germany and East Germany becomes clear. At the western end of the streets, salaries are between four and six times the salaries of those who lived in the East.
