Tuesday Photo Challenge #8 – Progress

Hello Everyone!

After an hiatus, here’s another photo challenge!

This week’s theme is Progress. I bring you a memoir of a day that I really enjoyed. This photograph was taken in Berlin in December 2013. I was there on a trip with my family and friends, and this morning was dedicated to memorial monuments. We started at Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (that you can see on the feature image of this post) and ended on Checkpoint Charlie (on the image bellow)

I would like to take this challenge opportunity to address a social problem: we should learn from the History mistakes and remember ourselves that we have the power to change things. Checkpoint Charlie was one of the military crossing points of the Berlin Wall – this one, was named by the western allies and separated east from west Berlin during the cold war.

As you know, this wall came down in 1989 and it part of our recent History. Checkpoint Charlie suits the purpose of my Progress interpretation – this was the one of the few places where you could cross the city, and even then you had to be searched by the military.  Now, it’s one of the most visited sights in Berlin and there’s thousands of people crossing there everyday.

We can always choose a different path from the one we’re living in! And with this positive note, I encourage you to share with me your progress photos!

  1. Wonderful post, Mara! I have not had the opportunity to visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, which looks very impressive. You really touched on the importance of learning from our shared history and not making the same mistakes… unfortunately, I don’t think all are so wise.
