Seventeen-year-old Peter Fechter was shot while attempting to cross the Berlin Wall on August 17, 1962. Guards left him lying in the Death Strip for almost an hour while he bled to death.
Many thanks to Frank Klawonn for sending me Peter's burial information, as well as his date of birth and a link to his funeral program!
