Global One News (G1) – Symbolic pieces defining the end of the Cold War are heading for the auction block to the highest bidder.
Four sections of the Berlin Wall will be auctioned next week and could go for up to $25,000.
This section of wall has been called the Parliament of Trees and stood at a memorial garden to honor and remember 258 people who were killed trying to escape over the border.
It reads, “To unite means to learn to share.”
It was once part of the 87-mile-long wall built in 1961 to separate East and West Berlin.
The auctioneer says the pieces could serve well in a public garden or museum or in someone’s private home.
These pieces are some of the last remaining parts of the Berlin Wall since most of it was destroyed or recycled when it was torn down.
The auction will be held March 12 in West Sussex.
