BERLIN After The War

A friend sent me a link to an after war documentary. It’s about Berlin in July 1945. The city was just doing it’s first breaths after the collapse of the Third Reich. Thousands of residents are out on the streets, working away to restore their lives.
The movie is especially interesting as it also brings our mind to what’s going on in Syria right now. Cities in Syria don’t look much different to what Berlin looked like in 1945.  Click on the picture to watch the movie.

The ever present question, why are humans doing this to themselves, why are we destroying eachother’s lives time after time again, remains unanswered. For me this movie is a good reminder of that peace is one of the greatest achievements humans can have. But it is also one of the rarests.
