Celebrating the Fall of the Wall

Today Germany and the world celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Lech Walesa, the former head of the Polish Solidarity movement, spoke to the gathering (along with others world leaders) and then toppled the first of a chain of giant colored dominoes set up along a 1.5 km (0.9 mile) stretch where the Wall once stood. The first 2 minute video sets up the second 3 minute recording of the dominoes falling.


  1. I will never forget watching it on the news in amazement.

    Amazing idea with the "dominos"!

  2. In a country that liked to maintain the status quo Gorbachev could have received a bullet from the Central Committee instead of a Peace Prize.
