WINDOW OF REMEMBRANCE

The Window of Remembrance commemorates all the people who were shot or died in an accident at the Wall while trying to escape or as a consequence of the border regime. The window display contains photos of the deceased, their names and dates. Each victim can be individually commemorated here. The names of the border soldiers who died while on duty are listed on a nearby column. The exhibit also addresses their political exploitation.
