West Germany

West Germany was a nation, initially administered by the Allies opposing the Soviet Union and East Germany, created by the separation of Germany following the Second World War. During the Cold War, a barrier known as the Berlin Wall separated West Berlin from East Berlin and East Germany as a whole. West Germany's capital city was Bonn. (AUDIO: Protect and Survive)
