He thanked those who started digging the 100-metre tunnel in late 1970; nine years after East Germany sealed its border. `It`s great to see that the battle for freedom was also taken underground, Mueller said before he took a tour of the new exhibit. `One can authentically experience … the courage of the women and men who tried to take people to freedom and resisted the East German regime,` he added.

They wanted to help friends and family to flee to the West but, days before it was finished, somebody informed East German officials about it.
