Berlin Wall in Zwickau

Location: Dr.-Friedrichs-Ring, near Alter Gasometer

1 segment

The memorial of Liberty and Unity in the Automobile- and Robert-Schumann-City of Zwickau should be a lasting reminder of the overcoming of the painful division of Germany and the dawning of freedom and unity. The Berlin Wall segment was set up near the socio-cultural center Alter Gasometer and was inaugurated on October 3rd, 2011. The artwork was created by Erika Harbort.

The administration of Zwickau was discussing such a memorial since 2009 with suggestions of some personalities who played an important role during the peaceful revolution. A Wall segment, which was donated to the Peace Center Zwickau by the last GDR defense minister Rainer Eppelmann, should be central element. (Source: City of Zwickau)
