Montreal – Berlin Wall Fragment

This piece of Berlin Wall is located in the World Trade Centre in Montreal.

The section of the wall was given to the city of Montreal in 1992 from the city of Berlin, as part of the Canadian city’s 350th birthday.

The section was brought from a location near to the Brandenburg Gate. It’s from the fourth stage of the wall’s construction, known as Grenzmauer 75, which was built between 1975 and 1980. There were 45,000 pieces of concrete involved in that rebuilding effort, which lasted until the war fell in 1989.
