When the Berlin Wall came down

History didn’t end with the fall of the Berlin Wall 20 years ago – but a new chapter began. The world we now live in was born on that confusing, joyous, and unbelievable night in Berlin. It began when a hapless East German official mistakenly announced on live TV that restrictions on East German travel to the West were immediately lifted.

20 years ago, the East Germans finally gained the freedom of movement we take for granted.  Tomorrow marks the anniversary of the beginning of the end of Soviet control of Eastern Europe.
