9 November 1989 – a date to remember It was a long time coming. 27 years ago, over the course of the 9 November and the following nights and days, the Berlin Wall, which separated the East of the city from the West came down. It was a world-changing event, not only influencing the city itself, but the whole country and the whole of Europe. The images went around the world and for the anniversary we are reproducing the events of these historic days. TEXT: THOMAS SCHROERS
