THE VICTIMS AT THE BERLIN-BRANDENBURG BORDER, 1961 € 1989

Between 1961 and 1989 at least 46 people were killed or died in connection with the East German border regime along the outer ring of the Berlin Wall that is today the state border between Berlin and Brandenburg. Information columns along the Berlin Wall Trail serve as “vertical stumbling stones” on the former death strip, commemorating these victims of the East German dictatorship. This book is a collection of the short biographies of the 46 victims who died at the ­Berlin-Brandenburg border which are presented on the commemorative columns. They honour the victims and preserve the memory of German division and how it was overcome by the peaceful revolution in the fall of 1989.
