Tracing the Peaceful Revolution
Autumn '89: the images of the prayers for peace in St. Nicholas Church and the Monday demonstrations on the inner city ring road were flashed around the world.
The decisive day for the Peaceful Revolution was 9th October 1989 in Leipzig, when 70,000 demonstrators toppled the SED regime with cries of "We are the people!" and "No violence!"
This was a moment when a piece of national history was written in Leipzig, opening the way to a reunited Germany.
On the night of 9th-10th November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell.
