The Fall of the Berlin Wallby Jeremy Smith
Imagine living in a city where you could be shot for crossing a certain boundary. For nearly thirty years, a wall divided Berlin and kept residents living in the eastern section under strict controls so severe that many people willingly risked -- or lost -- their lives attempting to escape to West Berlin. No wonder, then, that on November 9, 1989, citizens on both sides helped tear down the Wall with their bare hands when the government of East Germany collapsed. Discover the events that led to three decades of social, political, and economic oppression, and learn how circumstances evolved into freedom for thousands.
