The Berlin Wall is a big part of Germany's history. The wall built of concrete or rock in just a short amount of time shows how urgent the wall needed to go up. The fact that it still stands today shows the strength of the materials used. Although it was a horrific thing, the people around Germany have created other works of art along the wall. Graffiti from all types of people have been painted, carved, and drawn into the wall, there are many colors and different line work, fast work and work that took a long time to create. A wall that once symbolized a bad war has been turned into a magnificent string of artwork.
