The fall of the Wall in Los Angeles

20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall it was time to celebrate the reunification of the 2 Germany's not only in Berlin, but also here in Los Angeles.
The Wende Museum in corporation with the Berlin Sister City Committee and the City of Berlin organized the 'Wall Project' on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. For this event real pieces of the Berlin Wall were shipped over and painted by local artists. They also installed a 40 ft. wide replication of the wall across Wilshire Blvd., which was closed for this unique event. Ute Lemper, the very well known Berlin born  singer performed a few songs just before the wall was torn down at midnight on November 9th.
