Where in the World is the Berlin Wall?
Published by Anna Kaminsky on behalf of The Federal Foundation for the Study of the Communist Dictatorship in Eastern Germany. 1st edition - Berlin: Berlin Story Verlag 2014, 19,95 Euro, ISBN 978-3-95723-017-1
A SYMBOL OF FREEDOM, OF THE HUMAN STRENGTH OF WILL AND A RELIC OF THE COLD WAR.
Countless pieces of the Berlin Wall were scattered around the globe after the Wall fell in 1989. These pieces of Wall embody the Berliner's fight for freedom. More than 240 of these sections - each weighing tonnes - have been located for this book. They stand on every continent at over 140 locations. Amongst those who now own sections of the Wall are Japanese businessmen, famous art collectors and all US Presidents from the last century. There are some exciting and strange, but also few tragic stories behind these pieces of the Wall. The stories in this book highlight the many ways in which the Berlin Wall has been used to commemorate itself and the Cold War.
