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.

1961 - When she was 72 years old, on August 13th, East Germany began erection of what would become the Berlin Wall between East and West Berlin.
