On June 12, 1987, Ronald Reagan delivered a speech that would go on to break new ground (or should we say, “tear down walls”), and the city of West Berlin echoed with its impact. Two years later, the wall fell on November 9, 1989, when the head of the East German Communist Party allowed citizens of the GDR to cross the border freely. Bring it back to the immediate aftermath of the defeat of Nazi Germany. In June of 1945, Germany was partitioned into two parts: the eastern half went to the Soviet Union, and the western half was divided among the United Kingdom, France, and the United States (the United States, Great Britain, and France). Despite the fact that Berlin was entirely situated within the borders of the Soviet Union, it was decided at the Allied peace conferences that the city would be partitioned. Therefore, construction of the wall began in 1961. East and West Germany were eventually brought back together after the end of the Cold War. The rest, as they say, is history.
