'I was in a disco when the Wall fell'


Germany is marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a series of major events.

Conny Rakow lived near the Bornholmer crossing point in the north of former communist East Berlin.

She recalls being in a disco on November 9, 1989, the night the Wall was breached.
