Night-time messages in Braille
On 5th of May, the German Central Library for the Blind in Leipzig will again be the “post office” for sending messages from the museum night. Visitors can send a post card with a personal message in Braille. As a message sent from or addressed to an institute for the blind, the cards will be sent to the respective address specified postage-free. The recipients of this mysterious greeting from the museum night in Leipzig can decipher the message with help of the narrow Braille alphabet printed on the back.
