Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the fall of Berlin Wall

Monday, 9 November 2009
No surprise what story dominated the headlines today: 9th November 2009. 20 Years today saw the falling of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Communism in Europe.

It was that monumental moment in the history of Europe that was celebrated in Brussels today with the recreation of Checkpoint Charlie and remnants of the Wall on display around the Place du Luxembourg.

Here are some photos:
