The Fall of the Berlin Wall November 9, 2009
Today, the 9th of November, is the 2oth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
This picture shows the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
To mark the 2oth anniversary, foam dominos, will be placed along the former route of the wall. These dominos have been painted with messages of freedom by young people. From 7pm British time they will be toppled, symbolising how the fall of the Wall triggered the collapse of repressive Communist regimes across Eastern Europe.
Here are some links to sites reporting on the Anniversary celebrations.
