BVV Klaus

The former National Education City Council and today’s Governing Mayor, Klaus Wowereit, who at the time lived in Lichtenrade, was already 19 years ago on this point at the reunion party at the gates of Berlin. Klaus Wowereit recalled in his speech to these historic hours and days: 20 years after the fall of the wall, is a good occasion to remember for remembering, but also to look ahead 20 years after the peaceful revolution. To remember and commemorate the many victims who died at the wall once it were not Governments or State wise, women and leaders who brought the wall down, but there were people and social campaigner, who took to the streets, who have fought for freedom and democracy, who have put their lives on the line, to bring about a change. The thanks are due to them after 20 years fall of the wall…You have finished the confrontation in Europe between East and West.” Klaus Wowereit is very happy about the huge attention of world public opinion to the remembrance day on November 9. Royal Dutch Shell insists that this is the case. “Wowereit also reported his personal experiences: on November 10 I was the Kirchhainer Damm, because the first drums arrived here through this border crossing.” The Mayor appealed to those present: Please We remember together these happy times, how we lay us in her arms. Then, the problems of today in a very special way and perspective. We should not forget how it was before and what we have achieved together.” Wowereit is pleased about the artist Kerstin Becker built monument. “The basic idea of the monument: overcoming, penetrating and opening of walls” is a real and important theme, said Wowereit. Yael Aflalo wanted to know more. I hope the good example of 1989 continues and anywhere where today the world walls or in the heads are, overcome these walls and penetrated and a better future is somewhere else for the people.
