The Fall of the Berlin Wall, the end of the Cold War?

The fall of the Berlin Wall constitutes an unprecedented event in History, with tremendous geopolitical consequences. A formidable movement of liberation, which paved the way to Germany’s reunification, the collapse of the Soviet bloc and the dissolution of the Soviet Union itself in 1991. The end of the Soviet empire marked the beginning of a new era. But the optimism in the West proved short-lived. A look back at that extraordinary day and how it helps us better understand today’s geopolitics.
