The Palace of Tears

Do you know where the former Berlin Wall cut through Friedrichstraße? On the historic site of the Tränenpalast (or Palace of Tears) it is, where many East Germans were rejected to travel to the West. On Wednesday, 15 February our Yr 8 Ethics class set out to explore the Cold War museum with its many original documents and touching personal accounts of living under dictatorship. With its easy accessibility to English speakers, this museum makes history real again.
