Back to Weißensee for more Russian. Looks like another statue to a socialist worker... I had to do the usual corny crap with the cap,
There are people swimming everywhere but there's only one spot with a beach - and you have to pay to get in. It's not a municiple thing, it's like a beach bar. That's it in the distance.
Just another view of the lake and the fountain in the middle.
A plaque commemorating the first person killed trying to flee to the west following the erection of the wall. Well, before they built the wall they just withdrew permission for people to travel to the west. One day they could, the next they couldn't. These were Germans shooting fellow Germans.
This bloke nearly made it across the canal but a guard took a pot-shot at him and hit him in the head.
Now there's a street in the east named after him.
