Description:

The memorial place "Point Alpha" should become more known within Germany as part of the countries history. It is part of our past same as the concentration camps.
Especially the US army and the armed forces from Russia and the former GDR were facing here each other for many years during the Cold War. NATO and Warsaw Pact were watching each other. Naturally the small NATO group stationed here would have never been able to withstand a sudden attack of the other side, but it was a demonstration - especially of the USA - to defend Western Europe and to protect the gained freedom. We never should forget that.
