The Berlin Wall
For twenty-eight years, the Berlin Wall separated friends, families, and a nation.
After the second World War in 1945, the victorious Allies, the US, Britain, France,
Russia divided Germany into four sectors, each under the control of an ally. The US,
British, and French Sectors combined to form a democratic state, The Federal Republic of
Germany, or West Germany. The Soviet sector became a communist state, The German
Democratic Republic, or East Germany,

In support of this position is the fact that while thousands of people tried to cross
the wall from East Germany to West Germany and over one hundred people died in the
attempt, there does not appear to be a single case of anyone climbing the wall in the other
direction. Overall the arrising and destruction of The Berlin Wall proved to seperate two
nations, but overtime brought those nations from being allies to comrads.
