about the video
A piece of the Berlin Wall will go under the hammer in Mexico City. Built in 1961, the Berlin Wall was erected to stop East Germans fleeing to the West. The wall eventually came down in 1990 after the fall of Communist regimes across Europe. The owner of the piece of the Berlin Wall, Luis Alonso, hopes that the new owner will continue to preserve the memory of this piece of history for future generations. (Reuters)
