Das Paul-Löbe-Haus und das Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus bilden durch ihre Architektur eine Einheit, so zum Beispiel durch die zur Spree hin zusammenpassenden Dachkanten und die Brücke, welche die beidseits der Spree stehenden Gebäude verbindet. Der Architekt beider Häuser bezeichnet die Brücke als „Sprung über die Spree“. Die Verbindung der Gebäude von Ost nach West symbolisiert die Zusammengehörigkeit von Ost- und West-Deutschland und ist ein Gegenpol zur Vision der Nationalsozialisten von einer Nord-Süd-Achsen-geprägten Welthauptstadt Germania.
The Berlin Wall (German: Berliner Mauer), known in the Soviet Union and in the German Democratic Republic as the "Anti-Fascist Protective Rampart," was a separation barrier between West Berlin and East Germany (the German Democratic Republic), which closed the border between East and West Berlin for 28 years. Construction on the wall began on August 13, 1961, and it was dismantled in the weeks following November 9, 1989. The Berlin Wall was the most prominent part of the inner German border and an iconic symbol of the Cold War.
Conceived by the East German administration of Walter Ulbricht and approved by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, it was built during the post-World War II period of divided Germany, in an effort to stop the drain of labour and economic output associated with the daily migration of huge numbers of professionals and skilled workers from East to West Berlin, and the attendant defections, which hurt the Communist bloc economically and politically.
The Wall was successful at decreasing emigration (escapes - "Republikflucht" in German) from 2.5 million between 1949 and 1962 to 5,000 between 1962 and 1989. However, it was a propaganda disaster for East Germany and the Communist bloc. It became a key symbol of what Western powers regarded as Communist tyranny, particularly after the high-profile shootings of would-be defectors. Political liberalization in the late 1980s, associated with the decline of the Soviet Union, led East Germany to relax border restrictions, culminating in mass demonstrations and the fall of the East German government. On November 9, 1989, the government announced that crossing of the border would be permitted. Masses of East Germans approached and then crossed the wall, and were joined by crowds of West Germans in a celebratory atmosphere. The Wall was destroyed by a euphoric public over the next several weeks, and its fall was the first step toward German reunification, which was formally concluded on October 3, 1990.
