I went through Checkpoint Charlie in 1984, just 6 years before it was no more.
It was a surreal and somewhat scary and unsettling experience.
Jade returned last week. Still surreal and unsettling, she shared the stories she learned of people’s escapes and attempts to get beyond.
She talks of a stereo, suitcases, cars and tunnels; vessels used to secure freedom. Some people fortunate; others not.
This is her visual take on the past; one that she gratefully never knew but one to be remembered.
