  • Construction 1961 On 15 August 1961 he found himself, aged 19, guarding the  Berlin Wall , then in its third day of construction, at the corner of Ruppiner Straße and  Bernauer Straße . At that stage of construction, the Berlin Wall was only a low  barbed wire  fence. As the people on the Western side shouted  Komm rüber!  ("come over"), Schumann jumped the barbed wire and was driven away at high speeds by a waiting West Berlin police car. Photographer Peter Leibing  captured a photograph of his escape on film and it became a well-known image of the  Cold War . Schumann was later permitted to travel from West Berlin to the main territory of  West Germany , where he settled in  Bavaria . He met his wife Kunigunde in the town of  Günzburg . [1] After the fall of the Berlin Wall he said, "Only since 9 November 1989 [the date of the fall] have I felt truly free". Even so, he continued to feel more at home in Bavaria than in his birthplace, citing old frictions with his former colleagues, and he even hesitated about visiting his parents and brothers and sisters in  Saxony . On 20 June 1998, suffering from depression, he committed suicide, hanging himself in his orchard near the town of Kipfenberg  in  Oberbayern . [2]
