20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. 

For my faculty colleagues teaching international law, this is also a reminder that we'll have to soon start telling our students that there was such a thing as the Berlin Wall, and that Germany was once divided into the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the German Democratic Republic (East Germany).  I remember teaching a class recently where none of the students knew who Nelson Mandela was . . . .
