1989 is a key turning point in world history. The Berlin Wall fell this year, triggered the domino effect on the fall of communist regimes in Eastern Europe. Poland was the first country to reject its ruling communist party through ballots on June 4th, 1989. On the same day, the People's Liberation Army cleared the student movement at the Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China. Since then, the two countries went seperate paths for 30 years.
