A piece of history | The Berlin Wall 25 years after the fall

The wall that once separated East from West Berlin has largely disappeared from the city. The few sections that remain stand as potent monuments to the ideological divisions of the Cold War.

But 25 years after the Berlin Wall fell, some 120 parts of it can now be found in more than 40 countries, from Britain to South Africa and the United States.

One 8,000-pound piece has been placed outside the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. It was given to Reagan for his “unwavering dedication to humanitarianism and freedom over communism,” famously expressed in his 1987 speech in Berlin, in which he called on Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.”

    The best that I've seen is across the street from LACMA on Wilshire. And if you're in Orange,CA you can see a section at Chapman Univ.
