When did the Berlin Wall fall?

The Berlin Wall, a symbol of the Cold War, was built by the German Democratic Republic (GDR) in August 1961 to separate East and West Berlin. It was finally torn down on November 9, 1989, after being in place for 28 years. The fall of the Berlin Wall was a significant moment in world history as it symbolized the end of the Cold War and the reunification of Germany. The dismantling of the Wall began on November 10, 1989, and was completed in 1992. The fall of the Berlin Wall paved the way for significant political and social changes in Europe and beyond.
