Last week we spent some days in Berlin at the Hello Etsy Conference – you can read all about that on Van’s blog. We added one extra day to spend some time sightseeing in the capital. One of the places we saw was the Topography of Terror exhibition on the grounds of the former SS and Gestapo buildings at Niederkirchnerstraße just between Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie. It excellently documents the rise, the evil and the fall of the Nazi reign over Germany and the consequences that had until 1989.
All along the exhibition area is one reamining part of the Berlin Wall. While walking along the western side of it there are some impressive messages to be found, witnesses of the suffering and tragedy this building brought above the people of Berlin. Here are some finds. The last photo shows the eastern side which is right beside the road that it once split.
