Atlanta remembers those in Berlin

- People gathered around the Christmas tree at Atlantic Station Tuesday night to remember those killed and hurt in the Berlin attack. It was a night of prayer and a night to stand together against the violence.

At Atlantic Station there is a Christkindl set up for the holidays. It is designed to look like a German market, similar to the one in Berlin where a truck rammed through the crowd killing 12 people and injuring 50.

Pierre Halpaus used to live in Berlin.

“I have many friends there, I am concerned, I feel for them, it's horrible, we wish all the best to the victims,” said Halpaus.

With news Tuesday that German Authorities were still searching for those behind the attack, concern and anger grew, but Barbara Heil-Sonneck said there must not be fear.

“I think what we can do as everyone in the world, is we keep up the good thoughts and thinking and standing united,” said Heil-Sonneck.
