East Germany (GDR): Remembering the Neue Wache Monument to the Victims of Fascism

Under the paved floor inside the building, the body of an unknown Soviet soldier – together with a body of an unknown Concentration Camp victim – were respectfully laid to rest, with a rectangular glass prism placed over the graves, that contained an ‘Eternal Flame’ of remembrance. This monument was continuously guarded by soldiers of the Friedrich Engels Guard Regiment.
