Where In The World Is The Berlin Wall?

The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but segments still remain. From Australia to South Korea to California, the Wall remains a symbol of broken bonds and freedom for many. Nowadays, people pass by these monuments without a second glance, but it is important to remember the days that led up to November 9, 1989.

10. George Bush Memorial Library, College Station, Texas

Some of you might have seen this memorial in Texas, but some might have seen it in Berlin. The artist, Veryl Goodnight, created the first statue as a gift from the US to Germany on the 50th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift. The statue in front of the George Bush Memorial Library is the second casting.

These six sections aren't the prettiest, but they are a chilling reminder of the Cold War.

16. Potsdamer Platz Train Station, Berlin, Germany

17. East Side Gallery, Berlin, Germany

This enormous stretch of wall gives a real impression of the magnitude of the separation. Since reunification, it has become essentially an outdoor art gallery, with murals and symbols covering nearly every inch.

COMING SOON!!!!

18. German Embassy, Washington, DC

The German Embassy will be home to it's very own piece of the Berlin Wall soon! On November 13, those tiny red flags in the grass will be replaced by a wall piece. This particular piece is even more special, because it has been signed by some of the most important political figures of the time. George H.W. Bush, former US Secretary of State James Baker, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl have all signed. This is a gift from the city of Leipzig to the US as a reminder of the strong ties between Germany and the US.
