The Berlin Wall in Pictures

December 15, 2014

The East Side Gallery in Berlin, Germany, is an incredibly moving memorial. It is a section left from the Berlin Wall, a little under a mile long. There are beautiful art depictions on the east side of the wall from over 100 artists.

My friend Leslie and I walked the length of the wall in silence. All of the paintings are full of emotion, and are each incredibly unique in their own way. One could only imagine what it must have been like to be here during this time. There is vandalism on some parts of the wall, obscuring what the artist had originally painted. Below are a few of my favorites, ones that moved me the most. Which paintings grabbed your attention?

Vandalism on the Berlin Wall, although it seems to add to the beauty, in a way.
