The fall of the Berlin Wall is one of the most significant and important in recent history. Today, November 9, 2019, celebrated the 30th anniversary of its collapse. A date that does not pass unnoticed for no one. Not for Google, which has dedicated a doodle to a day as indicated.
A city that in its time was a symbol of Europe was divided into two. The 13 of August 1961, the soviet communist regime began to build the foundation of the also known as the “iron curtain” in order to avoid that people do not leave the east Berlin, in a situation of misery and poverty and communism was installed in that area. What began as a great barbed-wire fence, ended up becoming a concrete wall, impenetrable.
Were Ronald Reagan, the US president at that time, and Pope John Paul II some of the international actors more pressed for Gorbachev, the leader of the USSR, put an end to the blockade and the separation of thousands of families. “If you want peace and liberation, come and open this door. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,” said Reagan in a speech in 1987.
A desire that took two years to be fulfilled. The 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell.
