this historic image was actually a still taken from the super 8mm film made photographer peter leibing as a crowd of on lookers shouted, "komm ruber!" - "come over!" it has a special meaning for me because a poster of that image hangs in front of me here in my office as i write this post. i purchased it in the then divided city, at the checkpoint charlie museum, during the summer of 1984. it's been with me ever since.
it will always symbolize our innate desire to be free from tyranny!
