Riccardo Ehrman Death, Journalist who prompted Berlin Wall to fall diesDecember 17, 2021
Riccardo Ehrman Death, Cause Of Death – Yesterday decan of Italian journalism Riccardo Ehrman died of old age at 92 in his house in Madrid, Spain. On the evening of November 9, 1989, he was at a press conference in East Berlin, where Günter Schabowski (then spokesperson of the East German Communist Party) announced a liberalisation of foreign travels for East German nationals. Ehrman politely asked “When do these new rules come into force?”, catching Schabowski off guard. The spokesperson said, “As far as I know, immediately, from now”.
A couple of hours later, a flood of East Berlin citizens spontaneously lifted the barriers separating the two halves of Berlin. Then, in the next hour, people started to bludgeon down the Berlin Wall. Riccardo Ehrman was working for Italian news agency Ansa when East Germans rose up against their crumbling communist government.
