Remembrance Day. Veterans Day. Armistice Day. No matter what you call it, November 11 is a date of utmost historical importance. At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month each year, most of the world stops, and respects a silence to remember the ultimate sacrifices that were made by military personnel.
The Berlin Wall stood until November 9, 1989 when ecstatic crowds swarmed the wall. The reunification of East and West Germany was made official on October 3, 1990, yet the wall remains one of the most powerful and enduring symbols of the Cold War.
