The German Embassy participated in this year's Washington Post Peeps Contest. We created a diorama based on the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and named it "Wir sind ein Peep! (We are one Peeple!)" The winners have been announced and, unfortunately, we are not among them Still, we think you'll agree that our diorama certainly made an impression. Despite our loss, we want to use this opportunity to give all of you lovely readers a history lesson about November 9, 1989. These harrowing scenes from our peep display will hopefully give you a glimpse into the fascinating chain of events that led to reunification. Enjoy!
