For 28 years East and West Germany were separated by a wall. During this time 133 people were confirmed shot trying to cross the wall and 5000 people were successful. It was separated so the four countries could control Germany peacefully. This was all well and good until the cold war began. This caused the U.S, U.K, and French to not trust the soviets.
The French the Americans and the British formed West Berlin witch became a capitalist country and the soviets formed East Germany. East Germany had a “planed” economy. During this time West Germany had an economic boom which made many East Germanys want to move to West Germany. This is why the wall was constructed.
The East Germanys were not allowed to enter West Germany, but the West Germanys were allowed to enter East Germany. In 1989 Hungary stopped it’s border restrictions with Austria and 13,000 East Germanys escaped in to Austria. They lead many demonstrations against the wall. Eventually many more people eascaped in to Austria and lead more demonstrations…
Because of all the protest a high ranking official said East Germanys could enter West Germany with proper permission, however he didn’t tell what that was, so Thousands of East Germanys flooded the Gates and the guards did have time to stop anyone so they let everybody throw after a while. The official time the wall was deconstructed was June 13, 1990
