On November 8, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell when the checkpoints were unexpectedly opened. The National Security Archive (last discussed in the October 22, 1999 Scout Report
) has recently placed online a small collection of documents related to this event. This collection consists of recently obtained verbatim transcripts of such historic meetings as that between Solidarity leader Walesa and German chancellor Kohl on the day the Berlin Wall fell, Soviet leader Gorbachev's meetings with Hungarian communist reformers, and "the Czechoslovak Communist Party's central committee's rationale for not calling in the troops in the face of mass protests in November 1989."
