This video was produced by Deutsche Welle in Cooperation with the German Information Center. It recounts the events that led up to the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 9, 1989 and German reunification on October 3, 1990.

Twenty years ago, on November 9, 1989, the world watched in amazement as jubilant crowds gathered on both sides of the Berlin Wall around midnight to celebrate the opening of the border crossings between the eastern and western parts of the city. A peaceful revolution in East Germany had finally cracked this grim symbol of Cold War and political oppression. It signaled the beginning of the end of Germanys postwar division and national unity came less than a year later on October 3, 1990.
