  Victims of the wall
by sabsi
 
 

These crosses at a fence opposite the Reichstag commemorate some of the hundreds of victims of Berlin wall.

There is no official number how many people had died trying to escape from the GDR but I've read numbers between 800 and 1200.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
