Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

Many things can fit within another…. not just Matroyska dolls either

Europe 2011second batch 006

All the following photos were containers for people. People who smuggled people from East Germany to Berlin during the Cold war, via Checkpoint Charlie and are now in the museum in Berlin.  It is a sobering thing to ponder about…. in the photo below you can see the “dummy” squashed into the boot space of this little car. Desperate people squeezing their way through desperation. I admire their determination and tenacity.
