BERLIN SEEKS TO PRESERVE THE “WALL”

20 years after the fall of the Berlin wall the city authorities try to preserve its ruins as a historical evidence.

At the beginning of 1990’s almost 100% of Germany’s population wanted to get rid of the Wall. There was a fear that the border again could be closed if the ruins remained in their place and reminded of he division.

In 2006 a project on the Berlin Wall was worked out which suggests to split the wall according to the historical events. Now some parts of the wall are being restored which is financed by the budget of eastern Germany.
