PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 23 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Cold War Era - The Berlin Wall. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Erected in the dead of night on August 13, 1961, the Berlin Wall was a physical division between West Berlin and East Germany in order to keep East Germans from fleeing to the West. When the Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989, its destruction was nearly as instantaneous as its creation. For 28 years, the Berlin Wall had been a symbol of the Cold War and thus when it fell it was celebrated around the world.

At the end of World War II, at the Potsdam Conference, the Allied powers divided conquered Germany into 4 zones, each occupied by either the United States, Great Britain, France, or the Soviet Union.
The same was done with Germany's capital city, Berlin. As the relationship between the Soviet Union and the other 3 Allied powers quickly disintegrated, the cooperative atmosphere of the occupation of Germany turned competitive and aggressive. Although an eventual reunification of Germany had been intended, the new relationship between the Allied powers turned Germany into West versus East, democracy versus Communism.

As Communism began to falter in Poland, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia in 1988 and 1989, new exodus points were opened to East Germans who wanted to flee to the West. The Berlin Wall was eventually chipped away, into smaller pieces The pieces have become collectibles and are stored in both homes and museums. After the Berlin Wall came down, East and West Germany reunified into a single German state on October 3, 1990.
