Save the Date! #MuseUp at the ‘Palace of Tears’

On Tuesday, 17th June, the Tränenpalast (‘Palace of Tears’) in Berlin is inviting us to a special #MuseUp on the anniversary of the Uprising of 1953 in East Germany.

“Leave-taking and longing, resentment and despair. The emotional experience of leaving East Germany for West Germany is never as intense as at Berlin’s Friedrichstraße Station border crossing point, called the Tränenpalast – “Palace of Tears”. Here, people directly experience the impact of a divided Germany on their personal lives. The role of the Tränenpalast only changes after the fall of the Berlin Wall.”
