The peaceful German revolution and the German reunification were a unique historical fluke. In 1989 courageous crowds have fought for the “Wende” in Lipsia, Prague, Dresden, Budapest and Berlin.

This video shows three landmarks of post-war German history in Berlin: the city in 1945, the rise of the Berlin Wall in August 1961 and the Fall of the Wall in November 1989.

Congratulations to the German Unity Day: freedom, peace and the civil rights of free citizens are basic conditions for happiness.
