November 9, 2009 - Germany celebrates the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Erected in 1961, the fall of the wall that symbolized the Iron Curtain between the communist east and the capitalist west during the Cold War on November 9, 1989, paved the way for Germany’s reunification in 1990.
