BERLIN - JULY 24: A woman peeks through a still-standing section of the former Berlin Wall, behind which lies the so-called 'death strip,' where East German guards had the order to shoot on sight anyone attempting to flee across to West Berlin, at the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse on July 24, 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Germany will mark the 20th anniversary this year of the fall of the Wall, which paved the way for the end of communist rule across Eastern Europe and German reunification later on. The Berlin Wall, built by the communist East German government in 1961, divided communist-controlled East Berlin and Allied-occupied West Berlin. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
