Trains to freedom or …

This is a remarkable artwork that I came across in a street in Berlin. It features two groups of children who are about to take trains going in opposite directions.

Berlin has many memorials to its troubled past. This is surely one of the most poignant

Heading for freedom

Two children head for their train, which will take them to freedom and safety. That is a heavy suitcase that the boy is carrying - they clearly do not expect to return and are taking everything they can with them.

Heading for death

These children seem to know what awaits them at the end of the line.

A discarded suitcase

This abandoned suitcase contains nothing but a broken doll. No luggage is needed where they are going.
