Cliewe Juritza - he was a real guide with a real story - a former GDR political prisoner and his private guided tours in Berlin
Growing up in East-Berlin, Cliewe could not imagine, to spend his whole life in a fenced in country. He tried to escape from the GDR, was imprisoned and finally released to the Federal Republic of Germany. Today Germany is reunited and so is his hometown.
Cliewe died on 20 Dec 2016. You can still see and hear a glimpse of Cliewes story of his flight attempt, if you go to the web pages of the UNHCR. You'll find a google translated version here.
The highlight of his tour guide life was an interview in English language at Brandenburg Gate on 13 August 2016 (see right box).
