berlin wall: Such was the case for Detlef Wiedenhoft, who, as a young boy, got stuck behind the Berlin Wall in East Germany and could not join his mother in Canada for 24 years, according to Metro News. Hannelore Marcus had immigrated to Canada in 1957, leaving her infant son with his grandparents in East Germany. Sometimes, not being together is actually best. The border was open at the time and Marcus and Detlaf's stepfather planned on sending for the boy once they were established in Canada. It became almost impossible for him to join his mom. That took longer than expected the couple struggled to maintain employment and when East Germany began walling off its border in 1961, Wiedenhoft was trapped inside. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
