When the Wall Came Down

Guten tag alle und herzlich willkommen auf Was der Tag! Yes, hello and welcome to Thing of the Day!

Now you may be wondering why we’re writing in German (or at least attempting to). Well today marks the twentieth anniversary of when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, one of the major events of the Twentieth Century and one that signalled the end of the Cold War.

If you want to know what will be happening in Berlin  to commemorate this, have a look at the website:

If you can’t get there, however, here’s some information from the BBC with links to other sites:
