Conlon Cash Extra Credit 2 The Wall Comes Down 1. In 1989, the Berlin Wall was still in tact, but the leaders of the Soviet Union and the United States had both changed several times since its original construction. Gorbachev met with George Bush, the new leaders of their respective countries. Gorbachev was of the opinion that the Cold War should end and that the people of Eastern Europe had the right to choose their own futures. He felt that if the people had the right to make these decisions, then they would remain allies of the Soviet Union. Hungarians, building on these opinions, took advantage of the situation and took down the fence on their border with Austria and Hungary. The Poles followed the lead of the Hungarians and sought to break away from Communist systems. Poland succeeded in doing so, having the first non- Communist Prime Minister in the Soviet Countries. These events worried the other nations that were under Soviet Control, especially East Germany.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
