On the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke in a church service that was held at the Church of Reconciliation, which stands where another church once stood in the middle of what was once no-man's land. Merkel commemorated those who suffered under the East-German regime, and those who died in the Holocaust. The anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall falls on the same day as the anniversary of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass, which marks the beginning of the Holocaust.
