'Everyone started running': Berliner remembers crossing the Wall

'Everyone started running': Berliner remembers crossing the WallBerlin (AFP) – “Suddenly they opened the gate!” recalled Berliner Andreas Falge, one of the first to cross the East German border into the West on November 9, 1989. A smile on his face, the 61-year-old is back on Berlin’s Bornholmer Strasse, once a sealed border point in the long-impenetrable Iron Curtain, recalling that “incredible night”. When the Berlin Wall cracked open here after 28 years, Falge was part of the roaring, jubilant crowd of East Berliners who were first to head west.
