hannahonline #Blue #Berlin | #Didyouknow: The fall of the #BerlinWall happened by mistake. For nearly 30 years the Berlin #Wall stood as a concrete manifestation of the Iron Curtain, preventing citizens in communist #East #Germany from fleeing to democratic, capitalist #West Berlin.
At a press conference on the evening of November 9, 1989, East German politburo member Günter Schabowski prematurely announced that restrictions on #travel visas would be lifted. When asked when the new policy would begin, he said, “Immediately, without delay.” In actuality, the policy was to be announced the following day and would still have required East Germans to go through a lengthy #visa application process. Schabowski’s confused answers and erroneous media reports that border crossings had opened spurred thousands of East Berliners to the Berlin Wall. At the Bornholmer #Street checkpoint, Harald Jäger, the chief officer on duty, faced a mob growing in size and frustration. Receiving insults, rather than instructions, from his superiors and nervously expecting results of his cancer diagnostic tests the next day, the overwhelmed Jäger opened the border crossing on his own, and the other gates soon followed. -From history.com | #interesting #history #facts #httravel #wiwt
