The Berlin Wall in Photos

If you're about my age, the fall of the Berlin Wall 20 years ago is not only one of the most significant events of your lifetime; it also hit during that "coming of age" phase, before the years of your life all run together. Here's a beautiful history of the Wall in pictures. Be sure to check out the photos that click to fade to photos of the same scene before the Wall came down.

Simply spellbinding.

Hi. Great photos. Thanks for the link. I can't believe that it's already 20 years. I remember the 9th November 1989 like it was yesterday. I was sitting in front of TV here in Vancouver. The atmosphere in Berlin was amazing. Young people lost fear from the regime and expressed their feelings like hope and joy from freedom. I was just afraid that army could interfere like in 1968 in Czechoslovakia but fortunately nothing like that happened.

Best regards,
