There was the entrance marked by the table "Raum der stille" and "Room of silence" on the right side/wing of the Brandenburg Gate. We got inside to a room where an older German lady sold some books and leaflets. She welcomed us and when she got to know that we were from Poland she smiled and started to sing... Polish national anthem in Polish language surely with German accent. Haha, it was very nice, we were very, very surpriced. Then the woman unexpectadly started to cry "let's live Poland". At this time we were a little bit confused. Haha, the woman didn't speak English so we couldn't comminucate.

Then we came into the empty room with candles and some modern paintings on the wall (on the picture) - it was just the room of silence, the place designated for serious reflection on the not so old past of divided Berlin and Europe, the victims of that time etc.
