Twenty Five Years Since The Fall Of The Berlin Wall

There was much to see but I decided to focus on the memorial to those who died trying to escape and live in the west . I found it to be powerful through its astonishing 'no frills' simplicity .The carved heads all facing westwards made an impression . I recall that night  (9/11/ 1989) and the years before it . To live in a united Germany is pretty wonderful .The celebrations were excellent and the atmosphere one of joy .
