IMG_2419For 28 years The Berlin Wall stood, completely dividing a nation – a separation that ran 28 miles long. 

IMG_2422IMG_2671 The parts of the wall that still remain are covered in artwork and graffiti, some with beautiful messages of peace and unity.IMG_2420IMG_2668 They stand as a constant reminder of such a large part of Berlin’s history – the divided society, followed by the reunification. A somber reminder of a difficult time for so many, and an opportunity for many foreigners to learn about Germany’s history.
