Berlin Wall fall: 25th anniversary.

Hello everybody,
Today is 9 November. Berlin is commemorating the 25th anniversary of the  fall of the Berlin wall.
That day marked the beginning of the  end of the Cold War 25 years ago.
Berlin wall existed between 1961 and 1989. A lot of people died because they wanted to cross into West Germany.
Germans celebrate Sunday anniversary services, performances and concerts. Berlin State Opera Orchestra have played Beethoven's Oda to joy from his symphony No. 9.
Thousand of people have gathered in front of Bradenburgh gate, which is a symbol of the united Germany now and 8,000 symbolic illuminated balloons have divided the city again.

It was one of the most important moments in History.



Peter Gabriel has sung David Bowie's song "Heroes" at the ceremony in Berlin.
