Own a Piece of The Berlin Wall

What happened to the Berlin Wall? It has been pecked, dismantled, torn down, chopped into little pieces, and now you can buy those. Not only a real piece of the real Wall, no, a piece of the real Wall inserted into a postcard of Bruce Springsteen, singing in 1988 in the East Berlin district of Weissensee, in front of more than 300,000 delirious young Germans. It was an event that started the revolution that eventually brought down the Berlin Wall, a little more than a year later. Berlinica has a limited—a very limited—edition of those postcards, sold by Amazon, an amazing deal for $6 only.

So, if you are a big Springsteen fan, that is the Christmas gift to go with. And if you are interested in how Bruce brought down the Wall, Rocking the Wall, by Berlin-based Reuters correspondent Erik Kirschbaum, is the book to read. It is available as a hardcover, a softcover, and an enhanced ebook, with links to Springsteen music and pictures of the concert.
