Weekly retrospective #58: No words!
One of the things we really wanted to see was the dreaded Stasi prision in Hohenschoenhausen (hard to read for a non German speaking people).
It is a huge building complex with a museum, the guides are people who had been jailed as political prisoners by the Stasi (secret service in the GDR). Unbelievable what kind of efforts they authorities did to break the will of their own citizens.
A very oppressive experience which left an enduring impression in ourself. Very happy that had the luck to grow up in a free country.
Below you will find images I've made during the walk through the prision.
Did some editing later in PS.
Really wanted to catch the horrible feeling the imprisoned have had.
