Irgendwann fällt jede Mauer

Eventually every wall falls ...

Today, it’s hard to believe this, but this beautiful city was cut in two by a concrete wall for more than 28 years! The building of the wall started on August 13, 1961. The Wall was over 155 km long. Many families were split. Many East Berliners were cut off from their jobs and from chances for financial improvement; West Berlin became an isolated enclave in a hostile land.
When on
August 23, 1989 Hungary opened the iron curtain to Austria, East German tourists used their chance to escape to Austria from Hungary. In September 1989 more than 13 000 East German escaped via Hungary within three days. It was the first mass exodus of East Germans after the erection of the Berlin Wall in 1961.
Mass demonstrations against the government and the system in East Germany begun at the end of September and took until November 1989.
Erich Honecker, East Germany's head of state, had to resign on October 18, 1989.
The new governement prepared a new law to lift the travel restrictions for East German citizen.
At 06.53 pm on November 9, 1989 a member of the new East German government was asked at a press conference when the new East German travel law comes into force.
He answered: "Well, as far as I can see, ... straightaway, immediately."
Thousands of East Berliners went to the border crossings. That moment meant the end of the Berlin Wall.
I must admit I am deeply moved when I am thinking this over… here in front of a remains of the Wall
