And while I’m at it:

On November 9 1938 the Progrom Night led to Jews being harmed and murdered, synagogues being burned and homes and companies of Jews being broken into and being ruined and being robbed in Germany so today Germany remembers these events.

On November 9 1989 the Monday Demonstrations of East German citizens led to the Berlin wall falling down, uniting a country and a continent and 17 million East Germans were free, weren’t imprisoned anymore.

On November 9 2016 America elects a man who wants to build a wall and if you can’t imagine the reactions of Germans and former East Germans, I have serious doubts about your common knowledge and your history knowledge.


GERMANY. November 1989. Fall of the Berlin Wall. People take pictures of the Wall (1), sometimes in their best outfit (3), chip away pieces as souvenirs (1 & 4) or cross it for the first time in their life (last picture). [Part 2]
