Did you know that 28 years ago today – 28 November 1989 – the Berlin Wall fell?

I remember hearing the broadcast on BBC radio as it happened. I couldn’t believe it as I’d only just visited Berlin that summer. I went through Check Point Charlie and saw the goose-stepping soldiers in East Berlin.

The book I’ve chosen is Stasiland: Stories from Behind the Berlin Wall by Anna Funder.
