The Point Alpha Memorial is located along the former inner-German border, between Geisa/Thuring and Rasdorf/Hesse, on a surface of almost 100,000 square meters. It is an interesting historical place where visitors can experience how life was during the time of the wall.

During the 2 hour guided tour “The Berlin Wall” you proceed to the traces of the death strip between East and West Berlin from the Bornholmer Straße to the Bernauer Straße.

If you are interested in the GDR history, you cannot avoid the topic State Security (Stasi). It is really important to understand the life of the people in the GDR, to understand why a lot of them escaped out of the state and it is important to understand how the dictatorship worked.

A few weeks ago I presented here the book “Beyond the Wall. Art and Artifacts from the GDR”. The book was published by the Wende Museum in LA and so I started some research. I want to know what a museum this is that so far away from Germany and the Eastern bloc deals with the artifacts and the history of these countries.

Last Friday I was invited to the premiere of the play "Haunting under the Ferris Wheel", which we are sponsoring this year. Venue is the Spreepark Plänterwald, which lies waste these days and is no longer used as an amusement park. Nevertheless, there are still old rides, houses and figures that are slowly reclaimed by nature.
