Standing at 69 metres / 227 feet high and is made of granite, sandstone and bronze this monument is a striking example of German engineering. It was built in 1873 to commemorate successful military campaigns and was set up in front of the Reichstag. There are 285 steps through the column, which lead to an observation platform, providing splendid views across much of the city.

Marie Elisabeth Lüders Haus, The scientific service centre of the German Parliament is part of the “Federal Row”, an architectural symbol of German unity.
This new building, inaugurated in 2003, owes its name to the social politician and women’s rights campaigner Marie Elisabeth Lüders. Alongside the Parliamentary Library and specialist scientific service providers it also accommodates a Wall memorial open to the public. Parts of the Berlin Wall have been rebuilt here to commemorate the division of the city along the former route of the Wall.

What will you tell him

Here is a young  boy,  holding his father’s hand and looking at the memorial for the Berlin Terror Attach victims days before Christmas.

Christmas markets in Germany, like in any other country, is for festivity, happiness, share a laugh, share a story, talk about beautiful future. Residents and visitors irrespective of cast, religion, ethnicity, country they come form are welcome to join the festivity. It is about PEACE.

Why would someone drive a truck into this place and hurt people ? What were they trying to achieve ?

What would the father tell his son ?
