(the word "back" got lost somehow...)

it was there in '66 when I visited there first (probably put there shortly after August 13, 1961, when the beginnings of a wall was first put up overnight) but it got removed after the wall fell at some point in time (I don't know the year). It got put back a couple of years ago as part of a permanent exposition/museum created there.

It was in November '89.Good idea this with the museum.
