Along the Wall, Berlin

→  commander un tirage papier

The Berlin Wall encircling West Berlin from 13 August 1961 to 9 November 1989, drawing a line across the entire city. It was supposed to prevent any escape attempts from East Berliners and GDR citizens to the West. It was 25 years ago, the wall was cracking, two blocks burst which marked the "turning point" (die Wende in German) in the history of modern Germany. Although the Berlin Wall is long gone, it remains present in the memories of the reunified city. Number of visitors from around the world marvel at the virtual disappearance of the book once considered as the most symbolic of the city. Today, the remains of the border of the GDR, preserved for posterity, lost their terrifying connotation. July 2014.
