Bernauer Strasse after the Wall was built
Bernauer Strasse was one of the focal points of German division. The range of consequences of the construction of the Wall can be exemplified here: The destruction of urban space and lifeways, the separation of family members and friends, and the attempts to overcome the Wall.
Bernauer Strasse after the Wall was Built
The tour on the former border strip between East and West Berlin uses the situation at Bernauer Strasse to describe the consequences of the Berlin Wall. Blind and visually impaired participants experience the historical site through various senses: They have the opportunity to touch historic objects and original segments of the Berlin Wall, use specially prepared tactile material and listen to original audio recordings. Sighted participants also gain new perspectives on the time when Berlin was divided by the Wall.
How did the Berlin Wall change Bernauer Strasse? How did the division affect people's lives? What traces of the Berlin Wall can still be seen here today? Just drop by and our live speakers will answer these and any other questions you may have. They’ll explain how the memorial was created and how the city changed after the Wall fell.
