Fall of the Iron Curtain
Freeze Date: November 2nd 1989
On the morning of August 13, 1961, Berliners awoke to discover that a barbed wire fence had gone up overnight, preventing movement between East and West Berlin. The fence, a testament to division, disharmony, and partisanship, had now landmarked a new era for the Germans. Riots festered through East Germany, as civilians demanded their freedom of movement. In truth, the rise of the Berlin Wall is all but a small yet epicentered reflection of a larger scheme of events.
Fast forward to 1989. The 7,000 kilometre behemoth of a barrier conceals the Soviet Union from the rest of the European subcontinent, with East Germany at its very frontier. Amidst the brutal Cold War, the Soviet Union is now barraged with revolutions from the Western Bloc, whose ideologies are now spreading to their very own satellites. The future of the Republic's protection against military infiltration has never been so uncertain.
Will the ill-fated German populace live to see their nation unite? Will the battle between the United States and the Soviet Union, two domineering global superpowers, result in a perilous European fallout? Will the Iron Curtain be a symbol of the victory over the West for the next century, more magnitudinous than the Nuremberg Trials or the Holocaust?
Only one way to find out.
