One of the most famous images ever taken, this moment in time forever frozen shows East German soldier Conrad Schumann as he abandons his post and jumps over a section of the Berlin Wall that had not been completed and into West Germany and freedom! Taken by photographer Peter Leibing, this has been reproduced a million times and statues have been made from this image, but this is a vintage original and one of only a handful we have ever offered.
