48 Years Ago

In 1961 the Wall went up. It divided East Berlin from West Berlin. It came to symbolize the Cold War and a divided Germany, East Germany and West Germany. My high school German teacher did not think she would live to see the Wall come down and Germany reunited. But she did, several years after she retired from teaching.

Here is an animated video by Deutsche Welle:
