Berlin Wall -- November 10, 2009

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I remember that no more than two years before, someone had offerred "The end of communism" as an intention at Mass. I thought, sure, after a nuclear war. Then Solidarity became part of the government in Poland, then the wall fell, and eventually communism pretty well died in eastern Europe.

The East German poster is from the German Historical Museum in Berlin (http://www.dhm.de/sammlungen/plakate/bestand.html).
