Altogether, as they remembered as much Wulff as the other speakers, at least 136 people died when they tried to escape towards Western Berlin. Nevertheless, for Wulff the deads are not the unique victims of the wall. " Behind them, there were million people whom they had to resign to a life in freedom " , the president said. Wulff, Christian Democratic origin, was useful to make an adjustment of accounts with which during the years of the division of Germany, from the West, they were resigned to that the wall existed.

The act was been p recedido by a controversy around declarations of the president of the party the Left, Gesine Ltzsch, that affirmed that the construction of the wall had been a consequence of the aggression of Nazi Germany against the Soviet Union. The declarations of Ltzsch called to the barricades to preservative politicians saw who them like test of which the Left – resulting grouping of the fusion between the postCommunists of the Party of Socialismo Democrtico (PDS) and dissidents Social-Democratic continued representing the dictatorial thought of the GDR. Wowereit, like was to be expected, in its intervention of this Saturday condemned the declarations of Ltzsch indirectly. " He is horrible that today there is who continue thinking that there were good reasons to construct muro" , Wowereit said. To hundreds of kilometers of the Bernauerstrasse, in Rostock (northeast of the country), the Left initiated a regional congress with a minute of silence by deads of the wall of Berlin.
