YES, I am going to Berlin, incredible.
That´s true, after so many years without traveling, except last year that I went to London, next eleventh of july I´m going to
one of the big capitals of Europe that is Berlin.
Berlin it is not only one of the bigger nice cities of Europe but
it is also a symbol of how time changed after some decades, as this a city with a large history since the last seventy years of
When I was born, Berlin was the capital of The German Nation that was under the Nacional Socialism Regimen that has inmersed Europe, and the rest of the world, in the Second World War.
Along the years of the Second World Berlin thousands of bombs
were throwed on the city till its total destruction.
After that, once the war was over and the nazis were defeated, the city of Berlin was divided in four parts, the same as the rest of German, England, France, EE.UU. and Russia occupied the four parts of the German Nation.
Some years after, Berlin was divided only in two sides, the Russian Communist Side and the Occidental part controled by EE.UU. , and a wall was erected on 1961 by the D.G.R., to prevent the bad capitalists ideas of the East and preserved the communist regiment of the West as long as possible from that bad capitalist east influence on people.
In fact what the R.D.G. wanted was avoid the pass of german people from the West side to the East.
So Germany was divided in two, the East, capital Bohn, and the West, capital West Berlin.
The Cold War between the West countries of Europe and the East, together with EE.UU. and other allies , was so long that I could live it in first person along all my youth and adult life.
It seems the world was going to be destroyed by the Nuclear Bombs, and some how every body was afraid of that events.
But in 1989, radical political changes occurred in the Eastern Side.
After several weeks of civil unrest, the East German government announced on 9 November 1989 that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin. Crowds of East Germans crossed and climbed onto the wall, joined by West Germans on the other side in a celebratory atmosphere.
Over the next few weeks, euphoric public and souvenir hunters chipped away parts of the wall; the governments later used industrial equipment to remove most of what was left.
The physical wall was primarily destroyed in 1990. The fall of the Berlin Wall paved the way for German reunification in one Nation, which was formally concluded on 3 October 1990.
