Today, residents of Berlin celebrate the historic day that marked the beginning of the end of Communism. Nearly all Berliners remember where they were and what they were doing the day that the wall fell twenty years ago.
Many residents relive their glee over the end of the hated division between East and West Germany. But there is also a growing contingent who remember the positive aspects of the socialist society in the east, including state-sponsored health care, education, and housing. They speak with nostalgia and admiration about the lost collectivist values of East Germany.
