East German "revolution" remembered in church campaign
April 30, 2009
Erfurt, Germany (ENI). Christians in eastern Germany have launched a campaign to mark the 20th anniversary of the peaceful revolution that overthrew communism, with a light sculpture shone onto the walls of the regional parliament building in Erfurt. The work by artist Ingo Bracke projected words such as "peace", "reconciliation", "non-violence" and "solidarity" onto the building that once housed the communist-run administration for the district of Erfurt in the days of totalitarian rule.
