Nice story. People were streaming across that border before the wall went up, which made up for the reason they built it. And it violated every agreement the allies had made with the Soviets and their vassal the DDR. We could have stopped it and didn’t! As it turned out 30 years later the Soviets were weak.

I was also in Europe when the wall came down.

I was not in Berlin... but ... I would imagine that the sentiment amongst the European population was a kind of buzz not unlike the buzz that occurred when they knew the Americans were about to liberate them ...
