A segment of the Berlin Wall was installed in the courtyard of the embassy on 13 February 2008, "to serve as a reminder of the past and a symbol of hope for the future".
John F. Kennedy School, Berlin
On the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall in November 2009, two wall segments were set up in front the John F. Kennedy high school building. The two segments were cemented back-to-back, whereby the respective short foot extensions of the bases were cut off. The "West" side is painted with colorful graffiti whereas the "East" side is colored historical plain white.
