Fall of the Berlin Wall



The fall of the Berlin Wall had begun with the building of the Wall in 1961. However it took about three decades until the Wall was torn down. Several times people in the Communist countries raised up against the Communist system but they failed. Mass demonstrations against the government and the system in East Germany begun at the end of September and took until November 1989. On November 9 thousands of East Berliners  went to the border crossings. At “Bornholmer Strasse” the people demanded to open the border and at 10.30 pm the border was opened there. That moment meant the end of the Berlin Wall.
