Berlin Wall
"71 years ago, ... That too we do not forget today,"
On November 9, 1938, on Kristallnacht, or The Night of Broken Glass, at least 91 German Jews were killed and more than 200 synagogues were destroyed by rampaging Nazi mobs. Chancellor Merkel said the Nazi pogroms and the Berlin Wall serve as reminders.
She said both show that freedom cannot grow and flourish on its own, "it has to be fought for and it must always be defended."

Cheers, as he crossed.
