Default Tear down the wall with the June 12 DCT

On this day in 1987, in one of his most famous Cold War speeches, President Ronald Reagan challenged Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down" the Berlin Wall, a symbol of the repressive Communist era in a divided Germany.

Since the end of World War II, the city of Berlin had been divided among the Americans, British and French forces on the western side, and the Soviets on the eastern side. Things gradually got worse until 1961 when the Berlin Wall was erected to prevent the citizens of Eastern Germany from escaping to the West. The Berlin Wall became a symbol of the Cold War.

With time, cold war tensions lessened. On June 12, 1987, with the Berlin Wall as backdrop, President Ronald Reagan delivered this famous speech:
"There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. Secretary General Gorbachev, if you seek peace--if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe--if you seek liberalization: come here, to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."

Two years later, on November 9, 1989, joyful East and West Germans did break down the infamous barrier between East and West Berlin.
Germany was officially reunited on October 3, 1990.

Gorbachev was the Soviet leader from 1985 to 1991. Reagan was president from 1981 to 1989, and died on June 5, 2004 at the age of 93.
