Brandenburg Gate is open...
Item # 599386
December 23, 1989
B-Z, Berlin, Germany, December 23, 1989 A great issue on the fall of the Berlin Wall, with a banner headline proclaiming (translated): "Berlin, Rejoice!" The front page photo shows a huge crowd at the Brandenburg Gate, apparently oblivious to the rain & storm of that day, as they prepare to celebrate Christmas without the Wall.
Some very nice photos on pages 2-5, two showing restraining gates run over due to the huge, pressing crowd.
Tabloid-size, missing some central leaves so containing 20 of 32 pages but including the important pages 1 thru 5. Very nice condition & a nice display issue since it is from Berlin.
