A peaceful revolution, the fall of the Berlin Wall, reunification: Deutsche Welle's special traces Germany's ongoing path to unity.
"Circle day" — that's how some Germans refer to February 5, 2018. It's the day when the Wall has been gone for as long as it stood. DW's Klaus Krämer shares his recollections of Germany's division and reunification.
More than 28 years after the fall of the wall, stories are still emerging about East Berliners' attempts to flee across the border — with help from their western neighbors. Rachel Stewart reports from Berlin.
The Berlin Wall stood for 28 years, two months and 27 days. Now it has been gone for just as long, at least as concrete and barbed wire. In other forms, it still stands, writes Marcel Fürstenau.
