Seeing History - It's Preservation and Destruction

Berlin Day 4

The day started out with some early internet time at a local coffee shop

Getting ready for the day.

Today would be a museum day. 

On our way we say the aftermath of a collision. Inevitable with Berlin's Busy Streets

Part of Lunch 

After the museums and lunch I witnessed a saddening sight.

The Westin Grand Berlin seems to have purchased a slab of the wall and have stood it outside the front door. Seeing as I love history and the fact that the wall itself represents so many things when I saw a couple being given chisels and hammers to get "their part of the wall" it disturbed me. How do people think this is alright? I know that this has ben happening for ages, it seem that our societies today are overly focused and the new allowing for the past to be too easily eroded away. Eroded or packed in your suitcase, one or the other.

Ruining History one Hammer Blow at a Time.
