Michael Reagan, son of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, will attend ceremonies in Germany marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. On behalf of the Reagan Legacy Foundation, Mr. Reagan will lead a delegation and will be joined by world leaders for the “Freedom Party” at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin on November 9, 2009.

Former President Reagan will be honored for his role in liberating Eastern Europe at the “Checkpoint Charlie” Museum, site of his historic remarks, including “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

It was not long thereafter on November 9, 1989, that Günter Schabowski, an official of the East Berlin SED party, announced that the citizens of the GDR were free to leave with immediate effect. A short time later, crowds flocked to the border crossings to demand their immediate opening.

A display of a thousand giant dominoes running from the Reichstag to Potsdamer Platz, a course of two kilometers, will signify the trail of the Berlin Wall. Witnesses from the day that the Wall fell will be joined by world leaders and public figures who will symbolically bring down the domino pieces.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and French President Nicolas Sarkozy are among those expected in Berlin for the ceremonies.
