What role did the Berlin Wall play in the Cold War and what events brought the fall of the Berlin Wall(I know that the wall fell on November 9, 1989)? Im really not sure on this question.

  • Social Studies -

    The Berlin Wall was constructed by East Germany and divided West Berlin from East Berlin. It served as a powerful symbol of the differences between East Germany under communist rule and West Germany, a democracy. It also kept the people of the divided city apart. Guards at the Wall killed several East Germans as they tried to illegally leave their country.

    The Wall fell as Communism lost its power and the people took over.
