The exhibition, covering 420 square meters, is dedicated to the history of Berlin’s division. It explains the political and historical situation that led to the Wall’s construction, its fall, and the reunification of Germany. Why was the Wall built? Why did the Wall stay up so long? Why did it fall in 1989? These questions are the focus of the multimedia exhibition that contains numerous artefacts, biographical documents and audiovisual media. The exhibition connects the history of political events with social history, showing how the brutal division of the city affected the people.
