Long Description:
In 1992 this monument was erected to highlight the ideals of freedom but to also remind future generations of the hardships of the lack thereof. Conceptualized by Tina Menhert of Architects Hawaii, whose family was stung by the erection of the Berlin Wall, it's symbolization is overwhelming. It is oriented to the cardinal points just as it was when it stood; the graffiti laced freedom side facing West and the drab grey communist side facing East. Alongside it are two 4FT long sections to help folks feel the immense pressure it exerted on the people it once held captive.
