Berlin Wall sections unveiled at library

 

A piece of Cold War history got a formal welcome to its new home in Mountain View on Thursday. A dedication ceremony for sections of the Berlin Wall included city officials and the family that donated the two massive chunks of graffiti-covered concrete.

The two, 7-ton sections are now encased in plexiglass near the front steps of Mountain View's library at 585 Franklin St.

The sections were donated by the Golzen family, which had them shipped to the United States shortly after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. The sections were on display until recently in a North Bayshore office park, off the beaten path and relatively unknown.

The only other sections of the Berlin Wall in Norcal are in Monterrey. There are only 60-something in the US.
