Location: Berlin

The fall of the Berlin Wall paves the way for German reunification in 1989. The Wall, “Wall of Anti-Fascist Protection" by the East German government and “Wall of Shame" for the West Germans, has completed its mission historic and was demolished the following year. 
Thirty years later, this artificial border that divided Europe into two worlds is lost in the tumult of the city and the desolation of the great suburbs. Along the disappeared Wall, distinct memories under two ideologies blend into a scar in human history.
