Lennedreieck 3

Lennedreieck 3

...when I go to the reconstructed parts I feel that I can not really understand what they want to tell me, the y follow an idea of order which is not really working any more in the city. Another interesting aspect of the Lenne triangle is that it has belonged to the German Demoncratic Republic until 1988, it was situated in the West but it belonged to the DDR, the Federal Republic bought it for 70 Million German Marks. Before 1988 this place was occupied by people, they foundet an independent republic in the middle of Berlin. The police chased the people after the government had exchanged the territories and the people occupying in the place fled to the East of the wall. They had breakfast there and went back to the West on a different checkpoint, so this is already a first story of the fall of the wall.
