November Trivia Contest

One of the most prominent symbols of the Cold War, the Berlin Wall was erected on August 13, 1961. One of the most guarded and treacherous borders in the world, those who tried to pass through were, more often than not, killed. Twenty years ago today, the Berlin Wall was opened, and those on opposite sides were once again free to visit with their family and friends.
A few books found in our collection about the Berlin wall are Writings on the Wall by Terry Tillman (943.1 TIL), The Berlin Wall VHS by A&E Television (VID 943.087 BER) and the fiction story Brandenburg Gate, set in the weeks before the fall of the wall, by Henry Porter (FIC POR).
