Thank you Christian Jaehn-Kreibaum for your presentation on the Rise and Fall of the Berlin Wall. What a great presentation both verbal and pictorial. Some interesting facts:
  • Between 1949 and 1961, 2.4 million people fled from the Soviet occupied East
  • Wall went up overnight on August 12, 1961 and came down November 9, 1989
  • During the period it was in place, the wall was rebuilt 4 times
