Berlin Wall segments around the world
Nov. 9 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. But if you’re a cash-strapped history buff, you don’t have to go to Berlin to witness a slice of communist memorabilia. Since the fall, parts of the infamous 90-mile long concrete divider have been scattered around the globe. Whether sold as mementos or installed as public monuments, these concrete slabs are Cold War relics worth a second look.
