Piece of the Berlin Wall on display next to the Social Sciences Building

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is proud to announce that a piece of the Berlin Wall is on loan to Kennesaw State University and is being displayed just outside the northeast corner of the Social Sciences building. Special thanks to Senator Chuck Clay for loaning Kennesaw State this important piece of history.

The plaque at the base of the wall reads:

The Berlin Wall separating West Germany and East Germany was erected on August 13, 1961. It became one of the most powerful and visible symbols of the Cold War. The fall of the wall in November 1989 prompted German reunification, which was completed on October 3, 1990. This piece of the wall was loaned to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Kennesaw State University by Senator Chuck Clay, son of General Lucius D. Clay, Jr. and Betty Rose Commander.
