Anyone under a certain age won’t ever remember a time when Germany wasn’t united. Even those of us old enough to remember the days before the Berlin Wall came down probably remember it as a dim and distant memory.
However, the whole subject of the Berlin Wall and the East/West dividing up on Europe is fascinating, and definitely worth 15 minutes of your time.
This video tells the full story of the Berlin Wall. From the opposing political aims of Russia and the U.S., to the actual construction of the wall overnight without warning.
I was too young when the Berlin Wall was torn down in 1989 to understand the significance of it all. But now, thanks to YouTube, I have a better understanding of the whole thing.
