"Flying Wall"

A piece of the Berlin Wall is taking off

A piece of the Berlin Wall has been lifted via helicopter to the top of Kollhoff Tower, and is put on display there, 100 meters in the air. The civil-rights activist Joachim Gauck is adopting this piece of history, which is part of an exhibition about the division of Germany.
