Beyond the Wall

The fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 symbolized the end of the Cold War and spurred on the peaceful revolutions that caused Communism to crumble. Twenty years later, this extraordinary documentary examines the communist era and its legacy, illustrating the endurance of the human spirit in the face of political dogma.

Rod's Comment: I highly recommend this documentary, especially for anyone born after the fall of the wall or anyone who may not be aware of the importance of this momentous event in human history or anyone who may have forgotten how events unfolded and how freedom was won for those behind the iron curtain. It was not inevitable that the west won. It was not inevitable that freedom prevailed. Communism could have been the victor in the cold war or we could still be facing a divided world one blink away from destruction.
