It was Sunday when the Berlin Wall started being built. August 13, 1961, to be more precise. Construction workers took their machines to the streets with cops and military forces on their side. This is how Berlin woke up on that summer Sunday so many years ago.
I have to say that even though I studied it in school and I remember watching tv when the Berlin Wall fell, I only realized the size of it and its importance when I visited Berlin for the first time, back in the summer of 2011. I remember walking around the Mauer Memorial and getting my mind blow about all this historical information that the schools in Brazil didn’t teach me.
