A Visual Story of the Fall of the Berlin Wall
On November 9, 2009, was the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The wall was knocked down at the end of the cold war. The wall was about 100 miles long, and about 136 people died trying to cross it.
I got these photos from The New York Times and Google images.
The New York Times ran a special interactive package in which people could submit their own photos from the fall of the wall.
Read Brigette's story about the history of the wall.
