Publishers Description
Now in paperback, current events get in-depth treatment in this exciting series

This compelling account carries readers back to Berlin, Germany, in 1989,
on the night that the Berlin Wall fell. From the moment his East German
assistant bursts into his West Berlin office to tell him that the wall is open,
Serge Schmemann is in the thick of things, taking readers along with him
as he witnesses the celebration when the wall is opened and the dramatic
changes that follow. From this unique perspective, readers learn about the
Berlin Wall, its construction, and what it symbolized to the world.
