1989 - Kathryn was 73 years old when on November 9th, the Berlin Wall fell. The Wall was built by the East Germans to keep East Berliners from escaping into West Berlin, separating families and friends. When the head of the East German Communist Party announced that day that East Berliners could cross whenever they pleased, happy crowds surged across the border. People brought tools and took parts of the hated wall.

1993 - In the year of Kathryn M Highberg's passing, on February 26th, a truck bomb exploded in the garage under the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
