Where Have All the Fragments Gone? (laphamsquarterly.org)

I was at the Mountain View library earlier today and noticed two slabs of the Berlin wall are on exhibit out front. It's a surprising coincidence to see an article on Berlin wall fragments on HN. In any case, if you're in Silicon Valley, you can stop by and take a look.

I've got one, a few inches across. Got it in the 90s. I keep it with my Trinitite, and my 3rd Reich coins. Not really worth anything, but it's neat.

I'm curious if there's a complete map of the segments' locations. At least for publicly displayed ones. Most German cities have one but don't show on the partial map in the article.

I had to click on the article because the first thing that my mind did when reading the title was to sing Pete Seeger's "Where have all the flowers gone?". Thought it may be related :).

Hugged to death, probably

You are indeed right. If I wasn’t on mobile I would have searched for an alternative URL, in my ingenuity I thought to give some community service by anticipating the downtime to users that read comments first(as I do)
