Baltic Chain (YouTube 3.53). August 23, 1989, approximately two million people joined their hands to form an over 600 kilometer (373 mi) long human chain across the three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) (Wikipedia) to mark the 50th anniversary of August 23, 1939 when the Soviet Union and Germany in the secret protocol of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact divided spheres of interest in Eastern Europe which led to the occupation of these three states. November 9, 1989 the Berlin Wall fell. In December 1989, Mikhail Gorbachev signed the declaration condemning the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact's secret protocol. Within six months, Lithuania became the first Soviet state to declare independence, on March 11, 1990. Only two years after this demonstration, the independence of all three Baltic states was recognized by most western countries.
