    The Berlin Wall - the barrier that divided the German city during the Cold War era - has now been down for as long as it was up.

    The wall was built by communist East Germany and completely encircled the western parts of Berlin.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports now on a new exhibition looking at life with and without the wall.
