Hötensleben memorial to the East Germany border graphic

I created this graphic based on a photograph of barbed wire on one of the fences, part of Hötensleben Memorial to the GDR border.

It's possible to visit the remains of the GDR border on a remarkable guided tour from the town of Helmstedt. Read my article or go to www.grenzdenkmaeler.de.



I pasted a neutral grey into the sky area. The barbed wire forms wavy lines which seem to echo the landscape - perhaps the graphic could be developed further to make more use of this. At the bottom is the latticework fence that was one of several barriers forming part of the infamous border that kept the GDR and the Soviet-dominated Eastern Bloc sealed off from the West.
