The infamous wall will be symbolically rebuilt in an anniversary event.
Berlin (WiredPRNews.com) – The Berlin Wall is temporarily going back up, but this time it will be constructed with colorful dominoes. As reported by Reuters, as part of a 20th anniversary event, the structure will be built with dominoes painted by school children to commemorate the collapse of the wall in 1989.
Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit is quoted by Reuters as stating of the plans, “It’s only a temporary attraction… “I don’t think anyone will come up with the idea that we’re building a Wall between East and West Berlin again. But there were many who ridiculed this idea at first. Now it’s being seen as a wonderful way to symbolize the falling of the Wall.”
Wowereit is further quoted as stating of the grand scale of events planned for the two-day festival, “I think 20 years marks a good moment to take stock, to take a deeper and more critical look than 10 years ago, and to take a look at what unites us.”
