This is a part of Berlin Free Walking Tour, when the guide explains a little bit regarding the Berlin Wall.
Capital University’s section of the Berlin Wall is now the centerpiece of a courtyard being established on the south side of Huber-Spielman Hall. The wall recently was moved from the first floor of Blackmore Library to a grassy area that is being converted into a courtyard where students can go when they want a quiet, contemplative and green space. From start to finish, the move took more than seven hours. We’ve edited down to the best 14 minutes, which is a little long by our standards for YouTube. But we thought it was worth showing the tremendous amount of planning, teamwork and care that went into safely moving this 2.8-ton piece of history across campus. tags: Berlin Wall History Capital University Columbus, Ohio, college, construction, art, #dialogue #citizenship #rigorous
