Berlin 2016 / Berlin Hohenschönhausen Memorial ⚡️ This was one of my favourite things I did in Berlin, highly recommended if you’re interested in hearing stories from former prisoners of the extreme surveillance measures in Berlin in the 60s. 👀 From @visit_berlin
- From 1961 until 1989, thousands of political prisoners were incarcerated here included nearly every famous GDR opponent.
The prison was sited in a restricted military area that was hermetically sealed from the outside world. The area was not even marked on any East German city map. Today, the site of the former prison stands for the history of political persecution in the Soviet-occupied zone and the GDR like almost no other location in Germany. #berlin #visitberlin #visitgermany #prisontour #girlslovetravel #igersberlin #topberlinphoto #topgermanyphoto
