Leo Schmidt on Berlin Wall Map Project

The project “The Berlin Wall as a symbol of the Cold War: from an instrument of the SED’s domestic policy to an architectural monument of international significance” aims to document the remnants of the border installation from between 1961 and 1989/1990 as well as about 120 Berlin Wall memorials erected in many countries around the world.
