German Chancellor Angela Merkel drew on her Communist-era experiences to give a history class at a school in east Berlin on the 52nd anniversary of the construction of the Berlin Wall. The 59-year-old became the first German chancellor to have grown up in the Communist east, and is old enough to recall the construction of the wall.
