Berlin Wall anniversary: Landmark date in Germany as symbol of division has now been down as long as it was up



The Berlin Wall has now been down for as long as it stood dividing its city, with 10,316 days having elapsed since the barrier was pulled down by the German capital’s inhabitants.

The guarded concrete wall was a flashpoint between East and West throughout the Cold War and stood for over 28 years. As of Monday 5 February it has now been reduced to rubble for the same amount of time.

Raised in 1961 and torn down by members of the public in a show of defiance in 1989, the Wall stood for 10,316 days.

It has now been 10,316 days since the Wall fell.

It is still quite somber to visit where the wall once stood. It is a stark reminder of the failure of Marxism.
