Rights and Responsibilities of the Berlin Wall
By tstaraustin, Updated
East and West Berlin were separated by a wall and kept East Berliners from getting out and West Berliners from getting in.
It was like this for 28 years before the wall was taken down and people were free.
The main reason they made the wall was to keep people from getting out. Before the wall went up everyone was leaving because they were coming to realization that in West Berlin there was a lot more freedom.
This way to West Berlin
We have a right to leave if we want to! Let us out!
We have a righto leave if we want to!
People were seperated from there families
Even lives were lost
People didn't trust their leaders anymore.
After the wall went down it had still left a big impact on people and their families.
President Ronald Reagan, an American president was the one who ordered the wall to be taken down. America was the reason the wall came down. Now, many countries turn to us for help. People will always remember this. And this is one of the reasons why the Berlin Wall is important.
