On 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell. Or rather, it did not fall, but more precisely it was dismantled, changing the fate of the world forever. What significance did that event have in a view of history that places fraternity at the centre? What message can it give us today?

We asked an exceptional witness, who with his work allowed those events to come down to us, one of those who can say “I was there”: Thomas Klann has been working as a photographer for the Focolare Movement for about 50 years: he is German, he is from Berlin and he has a strong passion for a more united world.
