Back in 1985 the border patrols of East Germany blew up a church called the Chapel of Reconciliation located just by the infamous Wall on the death strip in Berlin. Standing there it was an insult to the East German regime and, in addition, it had become a symbol of what the wall was blocking for the East Germans. A few years after the iron curtain fell a new church was built on the same spot as the old one. The photo below shows a wall from within the church with its rough concrete surface.
