    • 5 Pages

    By 1961, Berlin had long been a symbol of autonomy and endurance to Communist expansionism during the Cold War.

With the Berlin Wall’s eradication, Germany would be reunited once more. The communist regime stood no longer, commencing a shaky start on the road to freedom. This was just another example of how communism would always fail. The end of World War II resulted…
