Tear Down This Monument

The city of Berlin has succeeded in dismantling the Checkpoint Charlie memorial, which included crosses honoring those East Germans who tried to escape and paid with their lives. A few of those persecuted by the GDR protested the destruction of the memorial but were forcibly removed. As always, Davids Medienkritik has much to say on this as well as photos of the travesty.
