Visiting The Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial

The first day of the remembrance has arrived. It was a great honour to visit the former political prisoner prison in Berlin. I could feel the atmosphere full of pain that the prisoners have experienced years ago. We have several prisons such as Hohenschönhausen in Lithuania and it was very valuable experience to compare them.  Although Soviet regime has affected all of us,  the different countries have experienced the regime differently. In my opinion the eastern countries such as  Romania and Lithuania felt it harsher. Nowadays it is important not to suffer from any form of violence again so combining pain from the past and ideas from now would be a great method to create peaceful and united Europe.
