I was taking German 1A the following Spring and our teacher who is German brought back a nice chunk that I got to hold in my hands. It was pretty cool.

Oh, and by the way, tonight, to celebrate the anniversary, I re-watched The Lives of Others by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0405094/). If you haven't watched it yet, stop everything you're doing and go rent this movie. Now. :-)

Oh, I forgot to add that the pictures are taken from Der Spiegel and Der Tagesspiegel, famous german magazine and newpaper. When I see these pictures, I have goosebumps. I tell you, from a European perspective, we've come a long way from WWI and WWII. From fighting to celebrating the 11th of November (end of WWI) together. From fighting to France (Chirac) representing Germany (Schröder) at an international summit a few years ago. It's amazing.

Neat post, Tulipe. I remember after this happened, looking through my history book at the time and reading that the wall would probably not come down in our lifetime. Isn't that something? Reading that felt surreal.

I worked for a radio network at the time - it made me nuts not to be able to watch it happen.

I vaguely remember when the wall came down. I do remember my grandmother's sister coming to America... they hadn't seen each other in 42 years because my grandmother was here in the USA and her sister was in East Germany. She could never get travel passage... so they waited for 42 years. I was too young to understand the importance then, but I do now. Thanks for sharing Tulipe. Very cool.
