Story "Jobs Created, Prosperity Earned"

Witnesses of Fall of the Wall in Leipzig: Carl H. Hahn (left) and Pastor Friedrich Magirius, Superintendant at Leipzig’s St. Nicholas Church in 1989. The Monday prayers and Monday protests at the place of worship led to the peaceful revolution in the GDR on October 9, 1989. Nationwide citizen protests, the demands for freedom to travel and free elections led to the fall of the Berlin Wall a month later, on November 9, 1989, and ultimately to the opening of the border between the two Germanys.
