LOSE YOUR­SELF IN 1989

THE FALL OF THE WALL

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The in­fa­mous Ber­lin bar­rier be­tween East and West, built in 1961, came tum­bling down in one the most iconic mo­ments in mod­ern his­tory. Guard tow­ers and the death strip made sure East Ber­lin­ers did not ven­ture into non-Com­mu­nist West and could ap­par­ently rest se­cure in the knowl­edge they were safe from the so-called fas­cist el­e­ments of bour­geois cap­i­tal­ism. Fi­nally, af­ter rad­i­cal po­lit­i­cal change through­out the Bloc, per­mis­sion was granted for East to visit West and the wall crum­bled as thou­sands crossed the bor­der.
