The potent symbol of Communist tyranny
became the site of celebration on November 9, 1989, as the wall opened for
the first time since 1961.
Freedom wins! View the photos of this historic occasion as witnessed by
four American adventurers who joined East Germans in their introduction to
freedom and who helped tear down the Wall. Read the adventures of
Wall Freedom Expedition. Post your
stories from this historic period. Buy
a piece of the Berlin Wall as a symbol of the end of the Cold War and
the triumph of freedom.
For the 30th
anniversary year of the Fall of the Wall, media are invited to
me for an interview.
Suggested topics: What lessons does the fall of the Wall have
for today's world events? What was it like in Berlin and Leipzig during
those exciting & historic times? How did East Germans react to freedom and
what did they do when they first crossed the Wall? Any questions about
smashing down the Wall (how did you smash down 1000 lbs/500kg of
Wall?); transporting it across the ocean,
selling it at that time and today; who buys pieces of the Wall
and why. Why we went to Berlin. Compare Berlin and the Wall from my first visit in
1975 to the 1989 and later visits. What was it like through the
eyes of Americans? Or any topic regarding the Wall, its
history, Communism, freedom and society, other adventures behind the Iron
Curtain, or you name it! One who was there can add important
color to your story.
