Germany marks anniversary of fall of Berlin Wall
« on: November 09, 2014, 10:09:28 AM »

A guard tower still marks the "death strip" between layers of the former wall that divided Berlin

Celebrations are being held in Germany to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Concerts and exhibitions are being staged in the city and Chancellor Angela Merkel will later attend a huge open-air party at the Brandenburg Gate.
White balloons marking a stretch of the wall will be released to symbolise its disappearance.
The Berlin Wall was built in 1961 to stop people fleeing from Communist East Germany to the West.
