The rise and fall of the Berlin Wall

Watch more with these video collections:

On August 13, 1961, construction workers began tearing up streets and erecting barriers in Berlin. This night marked the beginning of one of history’s most infamous dividing lines: the Berlin Wall. Construction continued for a decade as the wall cut through neighborhoods, separated families, and divided not just Germany, but the world.

…until November 9, 1989. Learn about the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall in this TED Ed by Konrad H. Jarausch.
