Of these, about 250,000 responded to Graham's invitation to accept Christ.The five-day crusade, translated in various languages and described as reaching the largest audience in Graham's 50 years of ministry, also went to sites in former communist countries.

It was Graham's first crusade in Germany since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989.
