On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall, the Axel Springer SE donated a segment of the Berlin Wall to each federal state. Bavaria’s segment was erected in Nuremburg in December 2009. The set up site was chosen, because of its position between the Memorial of Flight and Expulsion and the Human Rights Columns in the Kartäusergasse. Nuremburg was chosen as set up site, because quite a few expellees and GDR refugees settled down here and because Nuremburg is a city of walkable history, as the former Lord Mayor said.
