Between East and West Berlin

This image is often shared with the following caption: Young girl barely managed to cross the border between East and West Berlin in 1955.

It’s actually a still image from an Italian movie “Oggi a Berlino” (aka “East Zone, West Zone”), directed by Piero Vivarelli in 1962.

The viral caption is misleading, because it fails to mention that the source of this image is a fictional movie.
