Some structures remain the same over the years while other change, figuratively speaking. Today’s city has one of those monuments. Constructed between 1788 and 1791, Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate was originally erected as a city gate and represented peace. Years passed as did governments and rulers. Since then the gate has symbolized triumph, victory, militarism, division and now freedom and the re-unification of Berlin and Germany.
