A fragment of the historic Berlin Wall was unveiled at Kartilya ng Katipunan in Manila City Monday. 

 
 

German Ambassador to the Philippines Anke Reiffenstuel witnessed the unveiling of Berlin Wall Fragment 22 during the Manila City Hall flag-raising ceremony Monday. The fragment was donated by Germany in 2014. 

The Berlin Wall Fragment 22 now stands at the Andres Bonifacio Monument (Kartilya side). 

Between 1961 and 1989, the Berlin Wall divided the City of Berlin into two halves, representing two conflicting ideologies. Its collapse in November 1989 was a crucial event in German history that led to the reunification of Germany.
