On November 9, 1989, East Germany opened its borders, allowing East and West German citizens to travel freely between the two countries. Jane Curry, a political science professor at Santa Clara University, joined CBSN's Tanya Rivero for a closer look at the impact of that iconic event in history.

I'll never forget watching this on T.V. Five months before this historic event, my family had returned to America from living in West Germany. The day this happened I had to go to school and I was surprised that none of my teachers or classmates didn't speak about what was happening. Anyway, I was happy this happened. Germany, Happy Anniversary! Germany, to me, you will always be my second homeland. I miss you terribly. The song "Winds of Change" always brings me tears of happiness. Ich liebe dich Deutschland.

I dissagree with the narrative that communism fall because of economics, I think China and in particular North Korea prove this assumption to be wrong, as well as this notion reduces the true value of dissidents who fought against the communist regime

When you open up the Turkish (Turkey's) western EU borders , the world can see at least 50 million new immigrants heading to Italy, Germany, Austria in couple of hours time, even selling their mansions nearby the Bosphorus Straits in seconds. World citizens like democracy, capitalism, freedom to live and travel without any obstructions to travel with visa curfews and treshholds of 1 week waiting periods.etc. We turks yearn for Turkish German citizens, or Turkish French citizens who prior to 1980 year immigrated to EU countries to live lavish and fine dining lives with their 3 children or more children at their homes. I have heard many turks who take their cars with their colleauges and drive from Munich to Paris to get lunch in another country and after overnighting returning back to Munich Germany.

Now there is the wall of Identity in Hongkong being pushed by China, and all the Lennon walls posting truths, art and free expression as a trap for those who tear them down. very ironic and amazing at the same time. The art makes the protests stronger..

I was only 3 years old and from West Germany when the wall was torn down, but yet it touches me so much that we are a reunited country again. There are differences between East and West until today even for the ones being born after the End of the cold war. And although there's a revival of right-wing extremism and "going-back-to-the-GDR-times"-thoughts nowadays, I hope we can always remember what it means to be a country that separates people, families and friends from each other for 28 years. Greets to Mr. Trump and his Mexican Wall! Move your inner, mental wall/boarder!

Todays new enemies democrat-soviet union. Another civil war May be the best decision. Our own worst enemies are radical democrat-soviets. How ridiculous is it that they help cartels.

The Germans miss a marketing opertunity, they could have sold the wall to Trump, I believe he has been looking for one. Maybe he could have done a deal and acquired this secondhand wall at a knock down price, perhaps with the minefields and automated machine guns thrown in.

Yet people in America now want those policies that made east Germany so bad.

More people died in the Mexican Drug with than 20 years in the Iraq War, 20 years in Afganistan War and the Entire Syrian Civil War. Think about that. Kids were not getting beheaded and dipped in hycrochlorid acid to melt their bodies and bones in Berlin as they have in Mexico. Cartels using drug mules as immigrants to cross the border....this did not happen in Berlin
