Trip Pictures - Berlin

[Schoenhauser Allee, Berlin. Bruce asked me to photograph the bike path]

[Bruce, in front of a fragment of the wall, Potsdamer Platz, Berlin]

[Bruce, Nollendorf Platz, Berlin]

[Memorial near Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp -- located just north of Berlin -- commemorating the death march of prisoners from the camp to prevent their liberation in April 1945]

[The main gate to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Between 1936 and 1945, some 200,000 prisoners passed through this gate.]

[Washroom in the Jewish barracks, Sachsenhausen. Two weeks after Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin visited them in 1992, right-wing extremists torched them]

[Communist-era Memorial at Sachsenhausen (1961). Note how the list of nations excludes Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, and gay men, all of whom were imprisoned and murdered in the camp, but who were not deemed worthy of memory by the DDR]

[Schloss Sansouci, Potsdam (built by Frederick the Great, 1740s)]

[Bruce in the Sansouci Gardens, Potsdam]

[Gardens, Sansouci Castle, Potsdam]

[Bildergalerie, Potsdam]
