Photo of the Week - Berlin Wall I

Berlin Wall I
Originally uploaded by Eugene Goodale
Shot in Washington DC at the Newseum. They have installed some segments of the Berlin Wall along with a guard turret. The display emphasized the role of the media in the tearing down of the wall. Although it seemed to me to be placed in a pop culture context rather than as a symbol of repression and terror that it actually was.
