Berlin Wall Documentation Centre, Berlin

The memorial on Bernauer Strasse has been established as the central site of commemoration for the victims of the Berlin Wall.

The memorial was constructed in 1998 and a documentation centre was established in the parish house of the Reconciliation Church on the tenth anniversary of the Reunification of Germany a year later. The centre was to serve as an addition to the monument, providing factual information and political education. A Chapel of Reconciliation on the former border strip was then dedicated in 2000.

These three elements allow visitors to learn about the history and consequences of the Berlin Wall on three different levels: artistically, factually, and spiritually. In 2007 it became apparent that the Wall was being completely demolished and it was determined to preserve sections as lasting and memorial to those who died and to commemorate the impact of the Wall on the lives of Berliners. It represents a poignant reminder of the impact of partition on the city and its inhabitants and History groups will certainly benefit from a visit to it.
