"Steinmeier pointed out, nevertheless, the historical event didn't indicate the" end of history" since U.S. historian Francis Fukuyama said.

Merkel will speak at the Chapel of Reconciliation, which stands on a stretch of the former Berlin Wall border strip where local people jumped from windows the day the wall was built to escape the communist East, while others later dug tunnels towards the West.

A sign of the Cold War and remainder of the West and the East, the Berlin Wall Wasn't demolished immediately. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

Flowers dropped in front of portraits from people who died at the Berlin wall after commemorations celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

"Without the courage and the will to freedom of the Poles and Hungarians, the Czechs and Slovaks, the peaceful revolutions in Eastern Europe and Germany's reunification would not have been possible".

Steinmeier said, however, that the historic event did not mark the "end of history" as USA historian Francis Fukuyama stated.

In Berlin on Saturday, Chancellor Angela Merkel said the Wall should remind Germans "that we have to do our part for freedom and democracy". The struggle of political systems had continued and the future was more uncertain than ever before, he added.

"Today, authoritarianism is once again rising", he said, namechecking China and Russian Federation.

"Joker" Has Become The Most Profitable Comic Book Movie Of All Time
According to Forbes , Joker has bagged a total of $304.2 million in North America alone, after only five weeks in theatres. Unlike those films though, Joker will earn its $1 billion gross without China or a 3D version to boost sales.

Merkel commemorated those who were killed or imprisoned for trying to flee from East to West Germany and insisted that the fight for freedom worldwide isn't over.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also used the occasion to appeal for European unity.

Merkel herself grew up in East Germany and was a scientist working in Berlin on November 9, 1989.

A representative of the group said that it is a message to stress the importance of bringing down walls in society and in people's mind, and that they want to remind Trump and Americans that the United States was at the forefront in bringing the wall down.

Thirty years on, Germany has become the most powerful economic and political force on the continent, but there remain deep misgivings among some in the country about how the transition from socialism to capitalism was managed.

Saturday was also the anniversary of the Kristallnacht - the night of broken glass - when thousands of Jewish homes, synagogues and businesses were attacked in Nazi Germany and Austria in 1938.

Berlin's historic Brandenburg Gate has been the setting for an art installation featuring around 30,000 ribbons with people's wishes, hopes and memories, suspended in the air to make up a 150-metre long "freedom cloud.' Under its musical director Daniel Barenboim, the Staatskapelle Orchestra is to perform Beethoven's fifth symphony - also known as the 'Schicksals-Sinfonie, ' or 'destiny symphony" - at the Brandenburg Gate as part of a concert to be launched by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
