Hi all. I'm doing a history project and was hoping to get some information from here. 
My research question is- "Did the urgency to leave east berlin symbolise the failure of communism?" 
Answers much appreciated!

For sure. Another example as a symbol could be South vs North Korea. People make an all-out efforts to leave that "utopian" country

I am not so convinced in that idea. No offence, but East Europe has never developed the communism, it was only socialism and both systems are completely different, so in that light, the answer is "no". Also desire to leave the East block was not driven by the governing system, but by governing people. I do not see today anyone running away from China?!? It depends from people, if you have people who want to kill you and take you all your properties, you will run off. If not, you most probably will stay and will fight for your believes....
but I am sure that your teacher will not understand such a thease, if you try to develop it further Wink

The purpose of killing is in protecting yourself, ensuring yourself and the easiest way to remove competition. It is always used during dramatic and huge structural changes - from the time of tribes in Africa until 21 century Wink
