Reflection on the Berlin Wall "Abstract City"

Interesting editorial on the Berlin wall by Christoph Neimann. Check out the whole article at The NY Times Website

"I saw pictures of people dancing on the wall in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Millions were out in the streets of Berlin, complete strangers were falling into one another’s arms, smiling and weeping at the same time. The images could not have been more emotional, but since I lived in southwestern Germany and we had neither friends nor close relatives on the other side of the wall in East Germany, it remained an abstract event." -Neimann
