Location: Charlottenburger Street
The idea of a CDU-affiliated organization (CDU = conservative political party) was to remind of the division of Germany and to preserve the memory. Supported by others, they erected a Wall segment in Recklinghausen’s Berlin estate. This residential area dates back to the early 1960s – when Berlin was divided by the Wall.
The segment came from a local recycling firm, which was involved in the demolition of the Wall.
