A fascinating look at East Germany in general and the Berlin Wall in particular. The story of the Wall from its first erection to the post-fall and reunification period is explored, with commentary from a wide spectrum of people. Former leaders are among those commenting, but also many in other professions. The psychological impact of the Wall, the jubilation of November 1989, and the aftermath are on display throughout, and both positive and negative effects from reunification are examined. The end result is compelling and humanizing, and essential viewing in regards to the Cold War.
