This weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal features articles on the November 9, 1989 events in its “Review” section. (Print edition or See https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-ordinary-people-who-brought-down-the-berlin-wall-11573228405 ) The WSJ online is available to non-subscribers this weekend.
There is also an article on the difficulty a former VOPO had in integrating into the western culture, and one dispelling the myth that President Kennedy made a mistake in grammar with his “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech. I asked my German instructor decades ago about that, and she informed me that including the “ein” (trans. “a” — indefinite article) would NOT have changed the meaning to a jelly doughnut. This writer does a better job than I could explaining.
