Oh Snap! Big Giants at the Big Wall

More than one million people gathered in Berlin last weekend to view giant puppets at the city's historical sites. The moving exhibit, put on by artists and technicians from the French troupe Royal de Luxe, celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The "big giant" was from West Berlin, while the "little giant" was imagined to be his niece from East Berlin. The street show ended on Sunday, when the puppets symbolically returned tens of thousands of letters intercepted decades ago by East Germany's secret police. The show cost more than $2 million, but it seems like the creative commemoration of a painful recent history was well worth the price.
