Firebrand and chameleon
On 4 November 1989, on Alexanderplatz in Berlin, oppositional groups and artists organised the biggest rally against the system in the GDR's history. Their banners showed images like the firebrand with blazing black, red, and gold hair, and the chameleon - a warning against changing sides like this creature changes colour.
On that day, thousands stood up for freedom of expression, the press, assembly, and foreign travel. More demonstrations followed. This wall shows banners from November and December 1989.
