Berlin Wall Flies for Guinness Record

"We wanted to show the wall flying. It's a symbol of division, but we wanted to turn it into a symbol of freedom." (Mühlenhof, in Kelsey, 2010)
Pastor, East German human rights activist and a nominee for the president Joachim Gauck made a speech "to mark the wall's safe landing" and signed the Wall - this section will be used in a new open-air exhibition on the observation deck about the history of Potsdamer Platz and present day Berlin (Kelsey, 2010).
