Berlin Wall in Guatemala

Location: Plaza de Berlín

3 segments

It was an idea of Manfred Kratz, the then chairman of the German-Guatemalan Chamber of Commerce, to erect a Wall monument on the Plaza de Berlín. In 1991, the Berlin Senate therefore provided three Wall segments which should be integrated into a total work of art. Unfortunately, planning, financing and the work on it were delayed until 1995.

In spring 1995, the monument Berlín por la Libertad (Berlin for freedom) was officially inaugurated.
