1 Segment

 

On occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall, the Leipziger Verbundnetz AG, a natural gasoline supplier, has bought a segment of the Wall, which was signed by Helmut Kohl, Michail Gorbachev und George Bush sen., the Fathers of the Unity.

In the following years this Wall segment was on an educational journey to a number of cities, where a few more signatures were added: e.g. by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Lech Walesa, former Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher, acting Federal President Joachim Gauck, Chancellor Angela Merkel.

On occasion of an early celebration of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall  this segment was sent on its way from Leipzig to Washington.
