:: November 9, 1989 / 1938

I won't get to political but in Germany there's remembrance day today. The 9th of november captures two crucial dates in german history: the Reichsprogromnacht in 1938 where systematically all jewish synagogues and shops were destroyed by Nazis and the fall of the Berliner Wall in 1989, a peaceful revolution against the didactorial GDR/DDR. I can only recommend watching the breathtaking movie "The lives of others" to get an idea how the regime worked and destroyed their own people. It also won an Academy Award for best foreign language film in 2007.
