Location: Hard Rock Cafe, Universal Boulevard
In August, 1961 this infamous symbol of the Cold War was erected to keep the East Germans from fleeing in order to the West. The Soviets built a wall between the East and West sections of Berlin. For the next 28 years the Cold War raged on and “Checkpoint Charlie” governed passage. The Wall stood as a harsh reminder of the chasm between the non-communist West and communist East. On November 9,1989 the Wall was symbolically brought down. Only a few parts of the Wall remain. The Hard Rock Cafe is proud to display this piece of history that symbolizes the Wall of oppression.
