Witness History is one among many history podcasts of the BCC world Service, and last month Witness History published five podcasts about the events that led to the Fall of the Wall.

The podcasts tells the story through emotional interviews with people who were there, right in the center of the historical events. For example you will find a fun interview with the first two East Germans that crossed the border when it opened.   

So relax while listening and learning about the Polish trade union, Solidarity, refugees in the West German embassy in Prague, mass demonstrations in Leipzig, and when the border between East and West Germany opened on November 9th 1989. Enjoy.
