Portion of Berlin Wall comes to Los Angeles

leave a comment »

My friend  Annet Peairs over at  Roland Communications knows my love of history and sent me a release on an exhibit of the 10 sections, or 40 feet, of the original Berlin Wall commemorating the 20th anniversary of the wall’s fall on Nov. 9. It’s located at 5900 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. 

The wall sections were acquired by The Wende Museum in Culver City, which houses one of the largest collections of German Cold War art and artifacts in the world.  The wall separated East and West Germany for 28 years from 1961 to 1989.  The wall can be seen for free through Nov. 14.               For more information, visit wendemuseum.org / wallproject.org
