Through the river in Berlin - swimming. Tunneling under the wall.

Buildings formed part of the wall and some people tried to jump from windows to the western side.

Driving through barriers, risking being shot.

Forged papers. I'm sure there are many other methods, these were the ones that came to mind as I recalled those dreadful years.
