How did the Cold War shape your life?


The struggle between communism and capitalism defined the second half of the 20th Century, pitting east against west and pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war.


As the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall approaches, CNN is re-airing its epic 24-part landmark series, "The Cold War", and looking to hear from people whose lives were affected by this remarkable period in world history.


How did the Cold War shape your life? What memories do you have of the period? Do you think it still affects your life today? How did it change the place where you are from?


Send us images of yourself and where you lived from the Cold War period along with a few paragraphs describing your experience. We’ll select some of the best for CNN’s coverage.
