The Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall is Germany's one very intriguing component when it comes to the history of World War II. This wall was an ideological construction serving as a divider of the West's democracy and the East's communism. On its inception, Berlin Wall was a well-guarded stretch of metal barbed wires to prevent the migration of the people from the east to the west. Though, the pain of separation was felt on the wall's both sides. Despite every odd, approximately 5 thousand people were able to cross over the other side of the wall. Around 400 hundred people got injured or even died in an attempt to cross the border. On August 23, 1989, reconciliation finally came and Hungary made a decision to end its border limitations with Austria. Because of this, almost 13000 individuals escaped en route Hungary. In effect, mobbing began at the Berlin Wall gate and people demanded to enter into West Berlin. After this occurrence, the historical wall was brought down.
