After the Armistice was made public on September 8th, Germany attacked and occupied Italy. It took 20 months of fighting for the Allies to reach the northern borders of Italy.

The Wall was built by the East Germans to keep East Berliners from escaping into West Berlin, separating families and friends.

People brought tools and took parts of the hated wall.
