Berlin wall was brought down on the day it was because this person fumbled while speaking during a press conference

The original plan was to open the wall much more slowly than it actually happened.


Schabowski fumble berlin wall tumble!


kinda like how it really happened

Well, who knew a fumble during a press conference could bring down more than just words? Talk about unintended historical impact!

“What do you mean the date doesn’t match in your calendar? I’m telling you…”

The irony is that the wall came down as quickly as it was erected overnight
