Summary/Abstract: The text presents the city of Berlin as a stage of traumatisms that gradually pass from the status of moral obligation to remember to that of touristic curiosity. Even pubs of the young in the eastern part resemble wounds in the city tissue. The rests of the Berlin wall seem to be used as a sort of mobile ruin to disseminate the meaning of disaster.
