Berlin Wall

In case you are not already familiar with Arts and Letters Daily, its range of links today on November 9, 1989 is extraordinary.

History is always personal. I know a couple, historically-conscious, civic-minded, well-read, who recall nothing about those months. They had a new baby that autumn and they were so deep in the Parent Zone it all went by them in a blur.

And history changes. The most consistent reflection of people who lived divided by the wall: "I never thought it would change in my lifetime."
