A crowd of about 10,000 East German refugees throng in the street outside the West German embassy in Prague, Czech Republic, on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 1989, before they are allowed to board busses to take them to special trains bound for West Germany. They hope to end their ordeal in the crowded mission and the streets around. (AP Photo/Diether Endlicher)
