At first, the Russians refused to get out of their olive drab cars, marked with the red star. Then two Soviet of- ficers emerged and talked with a U.S. major. A U.S. trailed, the Soviet convoy to the Soviet war memorial in, the British sector. The Russians returned, about 45 minutes later and were quickly waved checkpoint into East Berlin.
