Song - ography "Another Brick In The Wall" Pink Floyd


The song by Pink Floyd almost became a hymn
during the downfall of the Berlin wall
25 years ago.


"We don`t need no thought control.."

Writings like that on the wall would not have been possible
in the GDR (Eastern Germany).


"We don`t need no education..."

Younger generations are now being educated about the history
and life in an oppressive regime.


"...just another brick in the wall "

This line of bricks across the street symbolises the wall which for
28 years divided families and friend and a whole nation.

  4. The bricks for where the wall stood are amazing! It's like a scar that reminds us of pain without feeling the need to pretend it didn't happen.

  12. I love this song, I walked done the aisle to it... except that as you've read my last post there was no aisle and I was getting married at the Great Wall of China... well I thought it was funny! Was it 25 years ago?
    Great post.
