Upon seeing this monument, I was immediately moved! Maybe, now more than ever it is important to remember where we have been as a society, in order to prevent anything like this from happening, again!?! The entire complex is stunningly dramatic! A MUST SEE!!!!!

Intriguing monument situated outside the House of Terrors Museum on Andrassy Avenue. It comprises of large rusty chain links and sits adjacent to a section of the Berlin wall. It’s free to visit and easily accessible as its next to the public footpath.

The Iron Curtain Monument was amazing. It made me think about how things were then and how they are now. With the multiple photos and descriptions, I was able to get a good understanding of the times.
