In the 7th grade classes today, November 9, 2009, students celebrated the 20th year anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Students each created a virtual piece of the Berlin wall and wrote what the symbolism behind these images are…. This is meant to be a reminder of the unity that was created as a result of this historic event Nov 9th 1989…. “TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!” Ronald Reagan C.Kochefko
Berlin Wall Lauren Gunthner I chose the picture of the children and the hole painted in the Berlin wall because it shows that the grass is always greener on the other side. The west side of Germany was free, not the east. I chose the picture of the Berlin Wall graffiti art to show that everyone had a part, feelings, or a meaningful part of the wall.
The Berlin Wall The Berlin Wall was a wall that was built by the government to separate the Communist East Berlin from the Democratic West Berlin. This divided the Berliners from their own city. Eventually this wall came down, and combined a city once again. These pieces of art represent freedom, peace, and combination.

Berlin was divided into to part by a massive wall. • The east was a communist and the west was democratic. • The wall had guards, mines, auto turrets, barbwire. • The wall separated friends and family. • People would write freedom or other words people died trying to cross.
Berlin Wall The construction of the Berlin Wall began on August 13, 1961. It was to stop the East Berliners from escaping the Soviet controlled East German state into the West of the city. In 1989 the wall was finally destroyed! When the Berlin Wall was destroyed it showed how much the people wanted freedom. They non longer wanted to deal with being separated. These pictures show how much people wanted to get rid of the wall. They symbolized their freedom!!!!
The Berlin Wall By Katie Cunius
What The Berlin Wall Means The Berlin Wall was a separation between East and West Germany. But when the wall fell down there was no protection between the two sides. This meant the East and West Germany had to get along. There was no freedom in Germany. To me, when the Berlin Wall fell it was a symbol. It meant that if two different sides in Germany that had been separated for so long could get along so could the other people in the world. So, I think this historical event actually helped Germany, and hopefully helped other countries that were being “separated.” By, Katie Cunius
Berlin Wall BERLIN WALL Separation of East and West Germany
BERLIN WALL • The Berlin Wall symbolized two different lands of Germany, separated by this one wall. • When the Berlin Wall came down it showed that East and West Germany were ready to start a new era without separation. • This peace sign means a peaceful era ready to begin in Germany.
Berlin Wall • I put the news headline from London on my slide to show that the fall of the Berlin wall was an important event not only for the Germans but for the world. I used the picture of people helping each other onto the wall because it shows that the people didn’t want the wall to stand. I chose the picture of people holding hand on the wall because it shows the unification of the east & west sides of Berlin. The picture of the artwork on the wall also shows that people didn’t want the wall. The picture of people celebrating on the wall shows the happiness that people felt when the wall fell.

Berlin Wall By Christiana Galowski
The Berlin wall means freedom to me. I think this because it separates East and West Germany but now that its down it lets Germany be free. It prevent the outflow of people from East Germany and other countries into the city and also to the west side of Germany to make it a whole country. By Christiana Galowski

Berlin wall The Berlin wall was the separation point of Berlin. It divided east Germany from west Germany. It was built by the government . Then the people in 1989 knocked down the wall to get their country back. The people Jack Thuon

The Berlin Wall I put these pictures on my peace of the Berlin Wall because they look like the graffiti that the people of East and West Berlin were writing on the wall before it fell. Many people were upset with the wall and wanted peace between the two parts of Berlin. The piece sign with the German colors symbolizes that people wanted piece throughout all of Germany and, especially, Berlin.
Berlin Wall 1961-1989 Michael Search
Berlin Wall The Berlin Wall is a landmark in Germany with a dark history. From 1961 to 1989, the wall separated the east Communist side from the Democratic west side. Until 1989, the city was divided into the East and West. Then, the citizens had enough. They destroyed the wall together, reuniting the city once more, and the people live in harmony together. I chose these pictures because they show the rebellion of the citizens of Berlin and the uniting of the city. It shows that the government shouldn’t have divided the two beliefs and that we should live in harmony, no matter what you believe in. After all, the world’s too small for walls.

The Berlin Wall mean love and separation. The heart shows the love aspect. When the wall was torn down it showed that we were together. “Mitten ins Herz” Means middle of my heart. The Berlin Wall should be in the middle of all of our hearts. The wall shows separation. It showed that we did not agree. But 20 years ago, that ended. Ollie Jones
