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.
Source: Getty Images.
The viral caption is misleading, because it fails to mention that the source of this image is a fictional movie.
Did anything similar to this ever happen for real? Are there non-fake pictures of anything similar?

Good question. I don’t know if anything similar happened. Of course there were plenty of incidents. Examples:
