Three upended buses, a reminder of a barricade erected in Aleppo in 2015 at the height of the Syrian war, have appeared in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin as part of an installation by Syrian-German artist Manaf Halbouni.Halbouni said the work, which evoked a scene from 2015 when Syrian rebels sought to protect Aleppo from government snipers, was meant to send a message of unity. Entitled "Monument," the red and white buses stand just one block from the Holocaust memorial, a somber reminder of the millions killed by the Nazi regime.
