waters of a canal separating East from West in Berlin 10 young people swam to freedom during the week end in the big gest mass escape since Tunnel 29 one month ago How was the escape brought off Like most of the successful operations which continue to bringan average of about 20 persons a week out of East Berlin this was a carefully planned carefully executed af fair of bravery discipline and daring and evidently brought off with some help from the West There were reportswhich to confirm that two East Germans who came out by this same escape route last week went back across to lead the escape of their friends Sunday night True or not it certainly is a fact that most of the escapes in to West Berlin now are being as sisted or organizedfrom this side Because lives are at stake and disclosures can ruin the chances of a repeat operation orrtip theEast police is to tricks and methodsdetails are not very welcome In print Bui there i is a basic to the operation with varying details in each case From the West a possible escape route isspotted or planned It may be a tunnel It may be some point along the wall which carefully observed from the West can be ap proached for a quick climb to freedom It may be some deserted or lightly patrolled area of the barbed wire On the latest escape the 10 persons assembled late last Saturday night at a house in East Berlin within walking dis tance of their chosen crossing point They then made their way singly or in pairs through the empty streets alert for police patrols At the border strip which they must have studied carefully in advance all 10 worked their way under three separate rows of barbed wire then crossec concrete barriers and arrivec at the edge of one of the many canals along the Berlin bound aries Couriers from West usually foreign students or young West Germans who un like West Berliners can ge passes to cross The Wall then enter East Berlin and contac the person who is to make the escape Together they may sur vey the route from the other side and work out minuteby minute details Since there is a security zone along the Wai on the Eastern side it is easier to spot escape opportunities from the West East Berliners cannot get close enough to plan details An escape involve some diversionary action by Wes Berlin friends to pull the border guards away from the poin where the attempted crossing is to take placeIt might be a lad der thrown up against the Wes side of The Wall at a precise moment or a rope thrown ove The Wall at an exact point And of course there are tunne operations These are the sort of details of escapes which never are an nounced when the escapers ge through A bare police repor that a man got over The Wall may conceal endless planning and preparation from the East Planning into the
