Berlin remembers those killed in Monday's attack


A memorial concert for those killed and injured in Monday’s lorry attack has been held today at Berlin’s iconic Brandenburg Gate.

The ‘Together Berlin’ event featured several bands, who all waived their fees, and an address from Berlin mayor Micheal Mueller.

‘The Dark Tenor’ performed the late-Leonard Cohen’s hit ‘Hallelujah’.

Graham Candy, a New Zealand-born, Berlin-based musician also performed.

Hundreds people, visitors and Berliners, came out to send a message against hatred, organisers said.

But the market, situated next to the Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church, has now reopened, and shoppers and stall holders have returned.

A memorial to the 12 people killed by Anis Amri has been erected,
and visitors to the market, along with continuing with their christmas shopping, are paying their respects.

Elsewhere in Berlin, other memorials and ceremonies were held this week.

Hertha Berlin and their opponents Darmstadt held a moment of silence before their Bundesliga game on Wednesday, at the German capital’s Olympic stadium.
