Fall of the Berlin wall

9 November 2014 will mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.

West Berliners chipping away at the Berlin Wall, Germany.  10 November 1989.

The Berlin wall, erected on 13 August 1961 by the communist regime in East Germany divided not only the city but families and friends. We’d like to document the effect the wall had on those living and working in Berlin at the time but also the changes that have happened for people, on both sides of the wall, since it came down.
