30th Anniversary of Fall of the Wall (November 9, 1989)

After having separated the people in East and West Berlin for more than 28 years the Berlin Wall falls on the night of November 9. This historical event was preceded by several waves of departure over the previous months. The people of East Germany took to the streets and demanded freedom of travel. To prevent the GDR from haemorrhaging the politburo finally feels it has no other option but to offer new departure and visa terms. At a press conference on the evening of November 9 Günter Schabowski, the speaker of the SED central committee reads from a paper, the content of which is unknown to him: It concerns the new travel regulations. The regulation is supposed to become effective the day after, but when a journalist asks the unprepared Schabowski he responds: “Effective immediately!”

Once these legendary words are aired on television more and more curious people rush to the Berlin border crossings.  Overwhelmed by the throng of people the border guards end up opening the barriers. By midnight all the border checkpoints to West Berlin are open. Within a few hours tens of thousands of people flock to West Berlin. Strangers hug, champagne corks pop, honking Trabis roll down Ku’damm. A moment in history.
