Berlin Wall in San Bernardino

Location: Ronald Reagan Park

1 segment

 

Central monument supplemented with further objects: In spring 2011, a Wall segment was erected in the Ronald Reagan Park in San Bernardino. The idea for the park and its implementation came from a local nonprofit organization, the Friends of the Reagan Park.

They have purchased the Wall segment on an auction for USD 2,500 in the previous year. The transport from Germany to California cost about twice as much.

In the Reagan Park, the Wall Monument is expected to present teachable moments for generations to come and to remind of the years Communism stole from families and friends who could not reach each other.

The dedication ceremony was documented by an amateur video:
