50th Anniversary of an Infamous Structure

The Berlin Wall was begun 50 years ago today, dividing families, friends, lovers, for "economic" reasons. This cynical action, which quickly became deadly brutal as many died trying to cross the Wall, was finally overcome on November 9, 1989. Without the fall of the Wall, I could not lead my life where I do today, with my husband in Weißensee.

Never forget! The Berlin Wall was an example of man's inhumanity to man.
