This was Berlin in December 1989, the year the Wall came down. My husband and I decided to go to West Germany for a few days from our home in England. We arrived on Christmas Eve, just in time to see the guards opening the border at the Brandenburg Gate, so people from the East could come over to the West for the first time in 28 years. We stood in No Man’s Land, watching people around us hugging and crying. We even saw family members who were reunited for the first time in nearly 30 years. Needless to say, we were crying too. It was incredible to be part of a historic moment.
