Festival of Lights in Leipzig

On 9 October every year, Leipzig commemorates the peaceful revolution in Germany that led to the fall of the Iron Curtain across Europe with projections, video performances and candles. The Festival of Lights recalls the events of 9 October 1989 when more than 70,000 demonstrators in Leipzig confronted the security forces of East Germany's communist dictatorship with cries of "We are the people!" Through partnerships with other European cities, the festival organisers are highlighting the worldwide importance of those events.
