Photographs by Leonore Schwarzer
Numerous events were held in both parts of the city to mark Berlin’s 750th anniversary. In East Berlin, the main focus was on historical heritage. The highlight was the big parade which took place on 4th July 1987 in Berlin Mitte with over 40,000 participants. The parade in Berlin Pankow, which took place a few weeks later, was also photographed by Schwarzer.
