Eastern Berlin was considered the Soviet sector. It was separated by West Berlin by the Berlin Wall from 1961 to 1989, and the East German government referred to East Berlin simply as "Berlin".

Nothing now. The former Soviet Union (USSR) built the Berlin Wall in 1961 to divide Communist East Berlin, which was under Soviet control, from free West Berlin, which was under German control. The purpose was to prevent residents of East Germany from fleeing poverty and an oppressive government, and escaping into West Germany.The Berlin Wall began to be torn down on November 9, 1989. East and West Germany completed reunification into a single country, Germany, on October 3, 1990.

Although East Germany was already sealed off from West Germany, Berlin had an "open" border. In 1961, East Germany closed the border and built the Wall dividing West Berlin from East Berlin. The area of East Berlin was the Sovjet zone, while West Berlin was compounded of the French, British and U.S. zones. The Eastern Bloc, under the control of the USSR, fell in 1989, as did the infamous Wall". The next year, Germany celebrated Reunification (Oct. 3, 1990)

The Berlin wall was built in 1961. Between 1949 and 1961, more than 2 and a half million people left East Germany for the West through east Berlin. The communist government of the East Germany was worried about this trend. Overnight, the East was cut off from the West, with Berlin split into two halves. The berlin wall isolated the communist East even more, and support grew for West Berlin. The situation got even worse when the USSR caught the USA spying on them.
