Although they weren’t born with it happened, a student re-enactment of the fall of the Berlin Wall has helped teens understand the significance of the demolishing of the barrier that once stood between East and West Berlin.
Members of the Unity Christian School chapter of Young Americans for Freedom held a small dramatization of the demolition of the Berlin Wall at the school.
“Symbolically, it marks the fall of communism and the Soviet Union,” said Corey Stone, vice chairman of Unity’s YAF. “It shook the world on its axis.”
The wall at Unity Christian was 12 feet long and made of wood, but included similar graffiti that was found on the concrete and stone original prior to its 1990 complete demolition. The exercise was held to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the end of the Berlin Wall.
Having a re-enactment is a project that chapters of YAF are doing across the country as a way of reminding students of the importance of the historical event.
