Berlin Wall in Mountain View

Location: Bayside Business Plaza

2 segments

Frank Goltzen’s American dream has come true: Born in Frankfurt/Main in 1931, emigrated at age 15, he became in the following years a successful building contractor.

In gratitude, he dedicated two Wall segments to the American determination to tear down the Wall. The segments were set  up on the parking lot of his Bayside Business Plaza in Mounain View in May 1991.

After Golzen’s death, his family donated the slabs to the city library in Mountain View.
