Berlin Wall Anniversary

Last year (2014) was the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall Fall. It is a well known fact that the Berlin Wall was a physical and political barrier between East and West Germany in Berlin from 1961 to 1989. But we often forget that the Berlin Wall changed a lot during this period of time: in 1961 the Berlin Wall consisted in a guarded wire fence, but in 1989 it was an insurmountable obstruction for East Berliners. The infographic down below shows the changes of the Wall throughout time and the number of (official) deaths for each year.
