thanksgiving (252/365)

Interior of the Chapel of Reconciliation in Berlin.

 

I like wandering in places I haven't been. I don't know if I would have marked this place as an intentional destination, but I found this building and the nearby Berlin Wall documentation center very interesting.

 

The original church was cut off from most of its parishioners by the partition of Berlin in 1945, and then completely surrounded by the two walls of the Berlin Wall in 1961. In 1985 -- only four years before the wall fell, the original church was destroyed. This beautiful space was built in its place. The walls you see here are made of rammed earth!
