Disturbing Wall Art in Berlin

Altho' this Daily Mail article, linked at end, has a different main subject – starting with Nicolas Sarkozy's confused recollection of his part in the fall of the Berlin Wall & continuing with general reflections on that event & its 20th Anniversary – there was a background in an accompanying picture that I found striking, disturbing &, unfortunately, memorable (brain bleach wanted). It's the first modern picture after two historic ones. (Second weird note: Why did they make the 1989 photo sepia?)

WARNING! This picture may disturb some readers. DO NOT PROCEED IF SENSITIVE.

It's a mural in the East Side Gallery in Berlin featuring Leonid Brezhnev & Erich Honecker

OK. You can look again.

The newspaper story, parts of which you might like to read. There are other photos too.
