Berlin

20 år siden besluttede et land at separation er ikke god for deres befolkning.
Kan du huske hvor du blev da du hørte at muren fald?

20 years ago a country decided that separation was not the right thing for its people.
Can you remember where you were when you heard that the wall had fallen?
Nu skal vi finde ud hvordan at "murerne" overalt i verdan kan bringes ned...
Now we need to figure out how to bring down all the other "walls" throughout the world.....

I was too young to recall anything, but I've seen parts of Berlin wall in West Point.

I had just returned to the UK after three years in China and a year in Australia.

I find it slightly poignant that we are applauding and re-enacting this tearing down of a wall when there is a wall going up in Palestine...

Well, yes, LadyFi. But you're not allowed to compare the two. One of them is against a whole people who have been defined as terrorist. And also who are regarded as less than human.

There are things you're not allowed to say in the Western news culture. That's why Obama's Cairo speech was amazing: Americans said, No, if he says that he will be destroyed. But he did and he hasn't been.

I was still living at home and attending Herning Gymnasium.

I'm not quite sure, but I think I first heard it in the morning, when my then boyfriend dropped by to say that the wall had fallen and he was off to Berlin on his motorbike and wouldn't be back for some days.

I was 13 when the Wall came down and remember seeing it on the news - it was one of those moments you will never forget!

A good movie about the Wall and East-West Germany, "Goodbye Lenin"...it is amazing!!!

I must have missed the part about West Germans wandering into East German cafes and blowing themselves and the customers to smithereens.
