The Wall Museum, located on the East Side Gallery, is the first museum
which presents and explains the Berlin walls entire history in an exciting and
multimedia fashion. Thirteen thematically designed rooms, almost 100 screens,
and a great number of projections spanning an audio-visual arch. The exhibit
begins at the end of World War II and carries onto Walter Ulbricht´s
statement: “Nobody has the intention of erecting a wall.” It then continues
to why and how the wall was built, consequently touching on how German
citizens in both the East and West suffered from it. The founders of the
museum have talked with many witnesses throughout the past years . This
including citizens, artists, and civil rights activists. They also had the
opportunity to speak with political decisions-makers such as: Hans-Dietrich
Genscher, James Baker, Miklos Nemeth and Michail Gorbatschow.
Furthermore the founders met with Helmut Kohl, who was honoured as
“Chancellor of Unity,” as well as Willy Brandt, who was honoured as
“Chancellor of Heart.” These two decisively promoted the relaxation and
reconciliation policy with Germany´s neighbours.
