The Berlin Wall's Wall & Chain Story


Sunday marked the 25th anniversary of the Berlin wall being brought down, and as a result every media channel in the world was flooded with incredible images, stories and documentaries. One little piece that caught our attention seemed too good to be true...

An Airbnb traveler brought her father, a former West German border guard, back home to visit a united Berlin for the first time. When they arrived to their accommodation, they discovered that their host was as a former border guard in East Germany. The two men discovered that they worked on opposite sides of the Berlin Wall from one another over twenty years ago. Their meeting marked an incredible moment with any former walls between them broken down and the bond of a lifetime formed.
