Tearing down of the Berlin Wall began after several weeks of civil unrest in 1989. The East German government began to allow visitation across the border. Citizens on both sides of the wall began chipping souvenirs from the wall. The wall’s actual demotion began in 1990 and took two years, leading eventually to German reunification.
