Wall recalled in domino effect rather than cement slabs

Updated:2009-10-24 11:13:21

 APBERLIN - The Berlin Wall will be back to briefly divide the German capital again next month - but with giant brightly coloured dominos rather than cement slabs.

As the highlight of a €5 million celebration marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, a 1.5-km long segment will stand for two days along its original route in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

The row of 1000 20kg dominos standing 1.5m apart - painted in bright colours by children and rising 2.5m high - will be toppled at the end of a gala ceremony as a symbolic tribute to the collapse of the Wall in 1989.

"It's only a temporary attraction," said Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit."I don't think anyone will come up with the idea that we're building a Wall between East and West Berlin again. There were many who ridiculed this idea at first. Now it's being seen as a wonderful way to symbolise the falling of the Wall."
