Mat, USA, I was There when the Berlin Wall Came Down
I was There when the Berlin Wall Came Down
I was living in Germany in 1989 and watched the start of the dismantling of the Berlin Wall live on Television, I decided that I should go to the wall to see what was happening.
When I got there, with the help of other people, I climbed up on to the wall and watched East German Police standing a good 50ft from the wall and could here heavy construction equipment being used to hammer at the wall but not see it so I decided to get down off the wall as I thought I would be able to see more at home on Television which was still showing live pictures as it was happening
In the next few days every German I knew said "they never thought they would live to see it", and nearly all the people I knew seemed to still have some sort of relitive still living in East Germany
And yes I did get a brick from the wall which I still have to this day
