In November 2019, the Goethe-Institut in Sydney celebrates the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. To commemorate this important moment in German history, an original piece of the Berlin Wall will be set up for permanent public display in the small park directly in front of the institute in Woollahra.
The concrete structure stands almost four metres tall, weighs more than two tonnes and still displays original graffiti with the words: ‘Jeder hat Kraft’ - ‘Everyone is powerful’.
The Goethe-Institut and Woollahra Council will jointly inaugurate the piece of the Wall with kind support from international freight company Henning Harders.
