Overview

A tour of the last traces and fading memories of the Berlin Wall, this book takes the reader to memorials, parks, backyards, train tracks, factories, churches, and Prussian cemeteries. There are stories of struggle, desperation, survival, rebirth, and a history that shaped the post-war world. Also depicted are the people of Berlin as they are reclaiming and memorializing the ground where the Wall once stood: Mauer Park, where young people from all over world gather to party; a guard tower that is now the Museum of Forbidden Art; the Topography of Terror Museum, which includes the former Gestapo headquarters; and landmarks such as the Reichstag, the East Side Gallery, and Checkpoint Charlie. This updated version includes additional information and new photographs.
