30 years ago today, Chris Gueffroy was fatally shot at the Berlin Wall. The 20-year-old, along with a friend, tried to escape to West Berlin. Chris Gueffroy died on site, his friend was severely injured and sent to prison.
We spoke to Axel Klausmeier, director of the Berlin Wall Foundation, about the incident and the efforts to write the history of those killed at the Wall.
The Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Straße will host a ceremony to remember Chris Gueffroy today, at the Chapel of Reconciliation.
