Today 50 years ago the German Democratic Republic began building the Wall. Until 1989, almost 900 people were killed during the attempt to leave the German Democratic Republic.
The soldiers on guard at the border had the order to shoot any persons trying to leave the GDR. Additionally, the border facilities had spring guns, anti personnel mines and canine squads. The Wall covered not only Berlin and the country borders but also rivers, lakes and the shore of the Baltic Sea.
As there are many ceremonies today to make sure that this monument of injustice and state terrorism is never forgotten, I built a small MOC to illustrate a little section of the Wall.
