The Parliament of Trees against War and Violence is a memorial for the people who died trying to cross the Berlin Wall. Ben Wagin, a performance artist, is the person responsible for creating this memorial at the border strip. The installation was created back in 1990, right after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and it’s made of trees, memorial stones, some parts and pieces of the border fortifications and the names of the 258 people that died trying to cross the Berlin Wall. The Parliament of Trees stands in the former no-man’s land and is made of 58 pieces of the Berlin Wall. But everything in this memorial is about the trees. Trees planted by the prime ministers of the sixteen states that formed the unified Germany. Sixteen trees stand there today and are the foundation for this environmental art piece. However, when Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus was erected nearby, the Parliament of Trees ended up being slightly reduced. Today, a reminder can be found inside a circular room in the Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus where remnants of the Berlin Wall secured by Ben Wagin stand along the Wall’s former path. He hand painted numbers on each concrete slab with a year and the number of people that were killed at the wall in that year. This memorial was opened in 2005 and it is called the Wall memorial at the Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus. It complements the Parliament of Trees. #warmemorial
