Next Monday marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. It marked the end of the long Cold War and the beginning of the end of tensions that had lasted for almost 40 years.

Our guest is Friedemann Bushbeck, who grew up in Dresden, East Germany. As a 27 year old he experienced the opening of the East German borders and the fall of that country's Soviet-allied government. Bushbeck now lives and works in the US, although he still has family in Germany.
