Berlin Wall 20 years later
October 30, 2009
Potsdamer Platz, at the place where the Berlin wall once stood dividing the city and country between east and west. This place is now a united high rise city of glass and steel construction. Shops, restaurants, office buildings, hotels, line the streets on both side of what once was a vacant and dangerous place to be. 20 years after the fall of the wall wealth, prosperity and peace exist in this place which has come to be known as one the most exciting cities in Europe. A vast memorial for the people killed by the Nazis in camps in the heat of the city were the wall once stood.
