It's just kind of a slab of concrete. I use it as a door stop for my bedroom door.

I too have a chunk...it is just sitting in a bag somewhere in my room. It isn't really impressive, it doesn't have bullet holes in it, and it isn't stained with blood or anything cool. Still intense though.

As a matter of fact I do, and believe it or not, I am wearing an East German "Volkspolizei" NCO cap as I am writing this- no shit! (getting into character I guess or one too many beers- whatever, I can't explain it but it just is).

My chunk is marked "1989, Berlin Wall" I was there when it fell, I served in the military in Germany '88-'91 (I admit it, I'm 35). As far as the Polizei cap that I own and other East German "artifacts" as I like to call them, medals, uniforms, boots etc. were extremely cheap and easy to get in some of the many flea markets surrounding Berlin after the fall of the wall, kind of like some women I met over there but it is what it is and good blessings to all "whores".
Beer- it's what's for dinner.

I have one. It's just a tiny chunk of concrete. Father got it as a gift from one of his customers from his former, ultra-capitalistic, workplace.

I too have a small piece of the wall. My relatives use to live in West Germany around 89/90. I also have a East German military fur cap (fake fur) that has a nice medal coat of arms on the flap. Too bad its too small for my head cause it hurt like hell when I had it on during my Meet The Press project for school when I was Tito (yeah I know - wrong nation and wrong kind of hat, but hey the kids in my class couldn't tell the difference).

Are most of you certain that your piece is authentic?

Since I did not see it acquired, no. But my mother got it off of the wall itself.

When I was young
It seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle
Oh it was beautiful
magical.
All the birds in the trees
They could sing so happily
So joyfully
Oh playfully watching me

You act like the Berlin wall was a good thing. Locked up like animals in their own country.

I don't think the wall was a good thing. But I supported the DDR.

oh yeah, I have a centimetre squared piece, in a decorated box. The souvenir company says it is authentic, and describes vaguely where it came from.

Does anyone know how much their's cost?

The fall of the berlin wall was mostly good, though its creation was justified. The French,British, and American sectors were arming themselves, and becoming one.The cold war was starting.

That's for the other topic, though.

I'd say look at eBay, but then again who knows if the peron cut off a chunk of their sidewalk and is selling it for 100 pounds

If the capitalists hadn't been stubborn and bitter after WWII, all of Berlin could've been part of the East. Instead, they received part of the city despite the fact that the Russians had reached it long before. All they wanted was a thorn in socialism's side.

Anyway, I suppose it'd be cool to have a piece. I'd love to have a part of the old DDR in my house. I'm already getting a huge East German flag for Xmas.

I wonder if West Berlin had something to do with the collapse of the Iron Curatin two decades later.
