ABSTRACT
The article recalls the fall of the Berlin Wall, built by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, on November 9, 1989 following protests staged by East Germans. It states the imposition of the so-called Iron Curtain by Stalin on East Germany that was occupied by Soviet forces then, which resulted in Western emigration during the period of Cold War uncertainty. It cites two historic events being celebrated by Germans in the fall of 2009 such as the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the 19th year of East and West Germany reunification.
