Peter Fechter
Birth: Jan. 14, 1944
Death: Aug. 17, 1962, Germany

Seventeen-year-old Peter Fechter was shot while attempting to cross the Berlin Wall on August 17, 1962. Guards left him lying in the Death Strip for almost an hour while he bled to death.

Many thanks to Frank Klawonn for sending me Peter's burial information, as well as his date of birth and a link to his funeral program!

How I would love to have you for an uncle who I could look up to and love like my very own. Rest in peace, beautiful beloved child. You are forever safe in God's loving arms.
