If you ever get the chance, I really recommend the film Rabbit a la Berlin (2009). It is a Polish film, which ostensibly tells the story of the rabbits which found the zone inside the wall a safe place to live. It is cute, interesting and poignant.

(If you are really interested in watching this, and have 50 minutes to spare, DM me.)

Ministry of Defence land contains some of the best protected wildlife, rare plants and archaeology,
for obvious reasons, the general public are kept out. And I've read similar reports of war zones
and tense border areas across the world, where humans are kept out, nature gets in!

Never thought it would happen in my lifetime.
As it is often with revolutionary events ... the inability of imagining them to be possible, contributes to making them possible.

With regards to November 9 1989 that refers to Günter Schabowski's famous press conference statements ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Günter_Schabowski#Press_conference:_the_opening_of_the_Berlin_Walll ... and the resulting reporting

Basically spreading the news that 'the wall has fallen' (when that was neither the intent of the new travel law, nor had happened yet) ... served to bring about its fall within hours.

(All of the material I've found in English is somewhat simplified, but these are acceptable)

I remind me exactly on this evening. My thought: OMG, thats the end (of GDR). I went to bed early.
A few days later I standing early in the morning (so 04:20 AM) on the Potsdamer Platz, as the first wall segment broke. It was so solid for the crane. The arming steel must cut with a angle grinder. And on the west side a photo-flashlight-thunderstorm.

And the same Saturday-evening I walked through this checkpoint from west to east.
Here a video, recorded 12.11.1989 (one day later).

Come on guys, I was just a little thing in grade school at the time!

But I was in Berlin for the twentieth anniversary celebration, which was a bitter cold and rainy night, but I went down to the center of Berlin anyway to listen to the speeches and join the big crowds.

Madiosi should have too a role in this story.
Most definitely!

Today, November 8, 1520. King Christian II (very questionable naming) of Denmark ordered the Stockholm Bloodbath or Stockholm Massacre, as it is alternatively known, when almost a hundred nobles and bishops were brutally executed for advocating Swedish Independence.

There must have been something rotten in the state of Denmark :)
