This article discusses life in Berlin, Germany after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The destruction of the wall revealed many hidden secrets of the Nazi regime, which have now been turned into monuments and museums to honor the dead including communists, artists, gypsies, homosexuals, and people of the Jewish faith. Former head of East Germany's secret police Markus Wolf defends the communistic vision of a more just society. The article discusses the structures and art of German citizens who still feel plagued with the past.
