“What are those cement slabs?”
Review of Berlin Wall Sections - MOVED

Berlin Wall Sections
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Actually I probably drive by these 3 - 4 times a week and now never look at them. I realize their history and signifigance but they just look so out of place. People coming into Truro and driving by must wonder what they are standing there for.

Firstly, there are no plaques stating that these outcroppings of broken wall are the Berlin wall. People dont even believe you when you tell them it is. They sit in an ugly part of town in an unkempt lot and do nothing but attract birds to sit on them and leave droppings. Not sure why Truro needs a section of this archaic wall, as a history buff I cannot even manage to understand it. At least they need to make something nicer out of the lot, and put a good stand or something there that discusses what it is and mostly WHY we have it in Truro.

It was rather awe inspiring to see the real panels from the Berlin wall in person.

It is nice to be able to show my son history in real life. You can see and touch the wall and it brings the thing to life. Nice grassy area around it to sit on in the summer.

The wall sections are downtown on the left side of Prince St., a one-way street. A private citizen placed them on a vacant lot and made it into a little park. It was our first time to see any of the wall, but we later saw another part of it in Maine.
