  • Why is Brezhnev kissing Honecker on the Berlin Wall? ⠀ Did you know that the most famous image that appears in Berlin’s East Side Gallery was based on an actual photograph? ⠀ The kiss itself really wasn’t supposed to inspire any romantic notions – it was just of a ‘’fraternal’’ nature – ‘’Bruderkuss’’, as Germans call it. ⠀ The “deadly love” mentioned in the title refers to the military agreement between the two states – obliging East Germany to provide ships, machinery and chemical equipment to the Soviet Union and the Soviet Union to provide fuel and nuclear equipment to East Germany. ⠀ #berlin #germany #travelgermany #valova_in_berlin
