Wednesday November 9th marks the 27th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - here are ten crucial quotes about the infamous Cold War barrier.

I was 49 years old and there!   I was highly emotional standing up on the wall watching my German and Austrian friends slowly start to realise that, after all they had suffered under Soviet rule, they were free to reconnect with their relatives.   I doubt I will ever feel the same again.   Lamplighter

That was a wonderful day for the world, LL - I cannot imagine what it must have been like to actually witness it yourself. I've never forgotten all those Trabants that chugged their way West.

Never to be beaten by any other event!! I had a call from a friend who told me to get a flight (I was in Vienna) and get my a** to Berlin as something was happening. I bagged a seat on the next flight out, wondering what it was all about - and, oh, boy, what happened was incredible. No words can ever really express the atmosphere of hope, relief and at the same time sadness that many never lived to see the day. LL

That's interesting, LL - I can see why this isn't an 'official' day.
