  Berlin Cross
by cruisingbug

My most vivid memory of Berlin was looking at the dates on the crosses on the West side of where the wall had been, in memory of those who had tried to cross into the West. Some of them died just months before the Berlin Wall came down. I guess those people who gave their lives for freedom trying to cross over truly had no hope that their land would ever be free.
